The Administrative Court headed by Judge Mohamed Attia, Vice Chairman of State"s Council Court decided today to oblige the Ministry of Interior to set free thirteen of the Muslim Brotherhood’s high ranking leaders who had been sentenced in the recent military tribunal. The detainees have completed three quarters of their sentence.
Dr. Mohamed Ali Beshr (Professor at the Faculty of Engineering and Member of the MB Executive Bureau and Former Secretary-General of the Engineering Syndicate) is at the top of the list along:
Dr. Farid Ali Ahmed Galbat (Professor of International Law, Faculty of Sharia and Law at Al-Azhar University ),
Dr. Mahmoud Ahmed Mohamed Abu Zead (Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University ),
Eng. Ayman Ahmed Abdel Ghani Hassanin (Civil engineer at the Arab Contractors Company),
Dr. Salah Eldosoqi Amer Morad (Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, Al-Azhar University ),
Dr. Essam Abdel Mohsen Afifi Mohamed (Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, Al-Azhar University ),
Eng. Mahmdouh Ahmed Abdel Moeti Al-Hussein (Free Engineer),
Sayed Marouf Abul Yazeed Mesbah (Accountant at Omar Effendi"s Company),
Fathy Mohamed Baghdady Ali (Maths Teacher),
Mostafa Mohamed Mohamed Mahmoud Salem (Auditor),
Eng. Medhat El-Haddad (Businessman),
Dr. Essam Hashish (Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University ) and
Dr. Diaa Farahat (Businessman).
The defense team of the thirteen Brotherhood’s high ranking figures who were sentenced by marital-court has submitted thirteen appeals for parole to the Administrative Court contesting the Minister of Justice, Attorney-General, Minister of Interior and Director of the prison sector. They urgently requested the original verdict on the draft which didn"t state the dissent of the administration"s decision to deny the parole provided in Article 52 of Law No. 396 of 1956.
It is worth mentioning that the continued imprisonment of detainees after they have completed their determined parole is considered both mental and physical abuse by law. The continuing of their detention is a violation of the Prisons Law in its Article 52 which provides that “Release is permitted under the circumstances that the sentenced person has served three quarters of the sentence in appropriate behaviour while in prison and should be released on condition that he isn"t a threat to public security”.
