MB Secretary General contemplates attending court case
Ibrahim Mounir, secretary-general of the Muslim Brotherhood opposition movement's international wing, confirmed he was contemplating whether or not to attend an Egyptian court session scheduled for July 14.
Monday, June 28,2010 02:03

The secretary general had been summoned by the Prosecutor general with 4 other international MB members including Saudi national Awad Alqarany on fabricated money laundering charges. In fact the defendants have been previously acquitted numerous times. Others charged include Wagdy Ghoneim, Ashraf Abdul Ghafar and currently detained in an Egyptian prison Ossama Suleiman.

No decision will be announced however before Mounir discusses the issue with human rights organizations based in Europe . He has been residing in London after receiving asylum from the authorities since Egyptian security previously threatened his life. If decided, he will be traveling to Egypt as a British citizen provided with the essential personal protection.
