On August 28, Interior Ministry forces had arrested the acting guide of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group Mahmoud Ezzat.
Ezzat (76 years old) was hiding inside an apartment in the Fifth District in Cairo despite the rumors that claimed he was outside Egypt. The security forces raided its apartment, upon a warrant of arrest from the prosecution.
The police confiscated a laptop and a number of mobile phones that have coded applications to enable Ezzat communicate with the MB members, besides a number of documents confirming MB members were scheming sabotaging plans against the country.
The terrorist leader was responsible for establishing the armed wing of the Brotherhood and was also the supervisor of sabotage operations committed by the organization members after the June 30, 2013 revolution.
Ezzat has been accused of assassinating former Attorney-General Hisham Barakat, and injuring nine other civilians in the same incident in 2015. He was also accused of killing Brigadier General Wael Tahoun outside his house in Ain Shams district in 2015, and killing Major General Adel Rajai outside his home in Obour City, 2016. Additionally, Ezzat was accused of attempting to assassinate former Assistant Attorney General Judge Zakaria Abdel Aziz in 2016.
Moreover, the detained terrorist faces charges of involvement in a car bombing accident outside the Oncology Institute in August 2019, which claimed the lives of 20 civilians and injured 47 others.
Also, Ezzat was charged with supporting a cyberwar that was launched by the group members on social media platforms in order to create chaos in Egypt and financing the group members to carry out terrorist attacks.
The Ministry of Interior listed the verdicts that had been issued in absentia against Ezzat. He received two verdicts of death in the cases of spying for Hamas and Wadi al-Natroun Prison Break. He also got two sentences of life imprisonment (50-year imprisonment sentence in total) for charges of inciting violence and murder in the cases dubbed in media as “the incidents of the guidance office” and “Minya violent incidents."
