CAIRO – 3 July 2017: State Security Prosecution on Sunday ordered the detention of the daughter of Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi and her husband, Hossam Khalaf, a leading member in the Wassat Party for 15 days pending investigations into joining an illegal group.

The case also includes a number of Muslim Brotherhood leaders, such as Mohamed Abdul Rahman al-Morsy, a member of the Supreme Guidance Office, who was responsible for managing the group's activities in Egypt.

According to security investigations, al-Morsy took over the administration of the armed activities of the group in the last period, and communication with the members of the guidance office whether in prisons or fugitives, including Mahmoud Hussein and Mahmoud Ezzat.

Qaradawi is a controversial figure in the Arab world, and is accused by many of his opponents of spreading hate and intolerance through his fatwas (religious proclamations).

Arab and Gulf countries , mainly Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain, severed their ties with Qatar over accusations of supporting terrorist groups.

The four countries have also sent Doha a list of 13 demands which must be met by Monday in order to end the standoff.

They also labeled 59 individuals, including Qaradawi, and 12 organizations, with ties with Qatar, as terrorists, and had closed their airspace and maritime navigation for Qatari vessels early June.
