CAIRO:  Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie was once again referred to criminal court by Attorney General Hisham Barakat on Monday over accusations he was involved in violence in Ismailia following the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi.

Along with 100 fellow defendants, Badie is accused of ordering members of the MB organization to act violently during protests on July 5, 2013 following the ouster of Morsi in the governorate of Ismailia, including the seizure of a State building, Youm7 reported.

Badie has already been sentenced to death in three different cases and to life in prison in another. He is accused in at least 30 different cases of violence, incitement to violence, conspiring with foreign governments against national security and leaking sensitive security information to bodies outside Egypt, namely Qatar. Morsi is also accused of providing such information.
