Cassation Court orders retrial of Badie, 49 others

The defendants were accused of storming Al-Arab police station in Port Said in August 2013


The Cassation Court accepted on Thursday the appeal of the supreme guide of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Badie, and 49 other defendants in the case known as “Al-Arab police station” in Port Said, ordering a retrial.

The defendants were accused of storming Al-Arab police station in Port Said in August 2013.

In August 2015, the Port Said Criminal Court had handed them jail terms ranging from 10 years to life. Badie was sentenced to life imprisonment.

The case includes several Brotherhood leaders, such as Safwat Hegazy and Mohammed Al-Beltagy.

In July 2013, several governorates in Egypt saw several demonstrations and riots after the ouster of then-president Mohamed Morsi following mass protests on 30 June. Afterwards, thousands of members from the Brotherhood were arrested and prosecuted in several violence-related cases.

Several leaders from the Brotherhood, including Badie, received several death sentences.
