CAIRO – 1 July 2017: Giza Criminal Court upheld a three-year prison sentence against five Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated defendants for allegedly breaking into Al-Ayyat police station, sentencing one of the defendants to a one-year imprisonment with labor.

In response to the dispersal of the Muslim Brotherhood-led Rabaa Al-Adawiya and Al-Nahda Square sit-ins, the Giza police station was stormed on August 14, 2013.

The sit-ins were arranged by members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group to lend support to former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

The defendants faced the main charges of storming a police station in order to steal property, including weapons and ammunition, and disturbing the public peace.

In March, the court sentenced the six defendants to a three year prison sentence, with each defendant also ordered to pay a fine of LE 1,000 ($55).
