CAIRO: The Criminal Court adjourned the cases of the imprisonment of Muslim Brotherhood leaders Mohamed Badie, Essam Sultan and others over torturing citizens during the Raba’a al-Adawaiya sit-in to July 24, reported Youm7.
The incidents took place in August 2013 and were known in the media as the “Raba’a slaughter” which resulted in the death of about six persons after being brutally tortured inside tents.
The Economic Court also decided to adjourn the lawsuit filed against Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim demanding him to pay 2 million and 884 thousand EGP to October 15.
The lawsuit was filed by Soheir A., the owner of a company producing electric machines, against the Interior Minister after a number of workers at the Aswan Security Directorate bought electric devices on installment from her company without paying it back.
