Military court jails 51 MB members for 15 years



Assiut Military Court sentenced on Thursday 51 Muslim Brotherhood members to 15-years of imprisonment on charges of attacking a police point in Minya city in 2013 after the police and army dispersed Rabaa al-Adawya sit-in in August 2013.

Legal experts told al-Masry al-Youm that the court issued its verdict after hearing eyewitnesses and the lawyer’s argument.

The military prosecution referred the defendants to court on charges of joining banned group, inciting violence and damaging police facilities following the Rabaa al-Adawya dispersal in August 2013.
