Six defendants in Al-Azhar University cell sentenced to life

Wed, Dec. 13, 2017
CAIRO – 13 December 2017: On Wednesday, the Cairo Criminal Court issued a life sentence to six defendants in Al-Azhar University cell for asking some Muslim Brotherhood members to call for a revolution in the university’s campus.

The national security sector was informed that the Muslim Brotherhood leaders at Al-Azhar university continued assigning tasks to various cadres responsible for the student sector at the University. The student sector has set plans for the Muslim Brotherhood members to spark a revolution inside Egypt’s universities’ campuses.

The investigations have also revealed that the cell has sought to attract new students, who are not observed by the security sector, by providing them with financial support and expenses of residence and study.

On December 1, Cairo University terminated five professors from the university's staff, for belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.

On August 14, 2013, security forces dispersed the Muslim Brotherhood sit-in in Nasr City’s Rabaa al-Adawiya, along with another sit-in in Nahda Square in Giza.

The Rabaa al-Adawiya sit-in was primarily forged by former Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated President Mohamed Morsi supporters and sympathizers in support of his legitimacy.
