An Egyptian court upholds life imprisonment for ten Muslim Brotherhood leaders

Today, Sunday, the Egyptian Middle East News Agency reported that the Court of Cassation upheld, with a final ruling, the life imprisonment sentences for ten leaders of the terrorist Brotherhood in the case known as the “prison storming.”
The agency said that the court rejected the appeals submitted by the defendants and upheld the rulings issued by the Cairo Criminal Court in September 2019.
The ten leaders included in the ruling are: Muhammad Badi, the guide of the terrorist group at the time, Rashad al-Bayoumi, Mohi Hamid, Muhammad Saad al-Katatni, Saad al-Hussaini, Mustafa al-Taher al-Ghunaimi, Mahmoud Ahmad Zanati, Hazem Farouk Abdel Khaleq, Muhammad al-Beltagy and Ibrahim Abu Auf.
The court annulled 15-year prison sentences for eight of the group’s leaders and decided to acquit them. The ruling included the expiration of the case against Issam Al-Arian due to his death before the case was decided upon.
