CAIRO – 14 February 2018: The Public Prosecution ordered on Wednesday evening the arrest of Muslim Brotherhood dissident and former presidential candidate Abdel-Moneim Aboul Fotouh over having connections with the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.
On Monday, an Egyptian lawyer submitted an official complaint to the public prosecutor, calling for the arrest of Aboul Fotouh, after appearing on an Al Jazeera television show from London.
Lawyer Samir Sabry accused Aboul Fotouh of "spreading fake news" and demeaning Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
