Egyptian court sentences 11 Muslim brotherhood members to life in prison

Egyptian court sentences 11 Muslim brotherhood members to life in prison

Cairo, Sep 11 (UNI) Cairo Criminal Court on Wednesday sentenced 11 out of the 22 arrested members of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders to 25 years in prison on espionage charges.

Among those sentenced to life in prison was the chief of movement's Egyptian branch, Mohammed Badie.

The defendants were charged with sharing intelligence with foreign actors, including the Hamas movement, and coordinating terrorist attacks in the country.

Three more members were sentenced to 10 years in prison, two others to seven years, while the remaining six defendants were acquitted of all charges.

In 2012, the movement managed to use the uncertain political situation in Egypt following the toppling of ex-President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, by nominating its member Mohamed Morsi for the presidential election, which he won in June of the same year.

In July 2013, amid a wave of popular discontent caused by the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, Morsi was removed from power.

The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1929, is an international Islamist organisation that has branches in about 70 countries.
