Trial of Badie, 104 others adjourned to 7 December

July 2013 clashes left three dead and 16 injured

The Ismailia Criminal Court adjourned on Saturday the trial of Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and 104 other defendants in the case known in the media as the Ismailia events to 7 and 8 December.

The court adjourned the case in order to hear the rest of the witnesses.

The defendants are accused of inciting violence and terrorism, amongst other accusations, in clashes between security forces and Muslim Brotherhood supporters in front of Ismailia’s office in July 2013.

The violence left three dead and 16 injured, in addition to causing damage to public buildings.

The prosecutor has referred the defendants to court in September 2014 with charges of disturbing public order. The prosecution also said that the defendants gathered to commit offences against people and public property, threaten public safety and kill and affecting the work of government officials.

The prosecution previously inspected the areas where the violence occurred and heard the testimonies of 25 witnesses.

In May, Badie was among other Muslim Brotherhood members who were sentenced to death over crimes of espionage and prison break.
