In a report filed at a police station in Shubra, a mother accused her son of preparing Molotov cocktails and collecting bladed weapons for use during opposition protests planned for 30 June.
The suspect was arrested and the prosecution has started an investigation.
Salwa Abdel Ghaffar, 50, accused her son, Abdallah Abdel Naby, 27, and a worker at a coffee shop of preparing Molotov cocktails and collecting bladed weapons for use during mass rallies scheduled for 30 June, which are calling for President Mohamed Morsy’s ouster from power and early elections.
Both opposition and Islamist movements are mobilising supporters for the protests, to be staged on the one-year anniversary of Morsy's election.
The suspect was arrested on his way home and it was found that he had been previously indicted on charges of possessing an unlicensed firearm and five strips of the strong painkiller Tramadol.
The police did not find any weapons or explosives at Abdel Naby’s home, and he denied the accusations made by his mother, saying the report was filed with malicious intent. Police found Tramadol pills in his home and the suspect said he was intending to sell them.
