An Egyptian court sentenced Mahmoud Ezzat, the former acting leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, to life in prison on Thursday, months after he was detained in a Cairo apartment.
Security forces arrested Ezzat last August in a raid in Cairo's Fifth Settlement district, the latest blow to a movement that has been the target of a crackdown since it was forced from power in 2013.
Ezzat was sentenced on charges of inciting violence and supplying firearms during clashes outside the Brotherhood's headquarters between its supporters and opponents in 2013, a judicial source said. Other senior Brotherhood members have been sentenced to life in prison in the same case.
Ezzat's lawyer could not immediately be reached. At the time of Ezzat's arrest, the Brotherhood said he had been pursued on "false political charges".
Ezzat was an influential former deputy to Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie, and considered a hardliner within the group. He became acting leader after Badie's arrest in August 2013.
Ezzat had previously been sentenced to death and to life in prison in absentia, but faces retrials following his detention.
Other senior members of the group have been jailed or left the country.
Good. That was Obamas old pal. Keep him locked up. Throw Obama in there with him.
When he makes parole he can come the US and get a faculty position at an Ivy League university
the Egyptian army took OUT the criminals.
never cowards like the US Army which serves the pedophiles
and the CCP CHEATERS OF US ELECTIONS, using fake
ballots and billions of fake $$$$$$$$$,
as the USA is laughed at, and Americans are slaughtered
by injections per plan.
Obama and Biden will plead to the Egyptians to free all the Muslim Brotherhood
They will probably try to destabilize and overthrow the Egyptian government again.
Ain’t gonna be no parole for the MB scuzzy. And Egyptian prisons are worse than Turkish prisons.
I know it’s Al Jizz but pretty descriptive.
“the Egyptian army took OUT the criminals.”
They had some serious balls, but I’d still like to see these Muslim Brotherhood terrorists executed, so Egypt doesn’t again have to worry about them.
GOOD FOR EGYPT....CAN’T WAIT TO CRUISE THE NILE!
