The second session of the military tribunal of forty Egyptian reformists and business moguls belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group will be held in the Huckstepp military base on Sunday, June, 3rd.
 
The MB leaders have been referred to the military justice after denying these honest reformists their constitutional right to stand trial before their competent judge although the are civilians, a stigma that defamed Egypt’s reputation, according to human rights organizations.
 
Tomorrow’s tribunal will be attended by a 100-member defence panel, including a number of foreigners, who will defend the MB reformists. A delegation from the Amnesty International (AI) and Human Rights Watch will also attend and monitor the military tribunal on Sunday.
 
For his part, Abdul Moneim Abdul Maqsoud, the defence panel’s coordinator said that there many lawyers across Egyptian political spectrum will attend the session, which will witness also foreign lawyers and some human rights organizations .
 
Abdul Maqsood added to Ikhwanweb that this international solidarity with the detainees confirms that nearly all the world knows the size of injustice afflicting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt including these leaders, in a mainly civilian politically motivated case which has no criminal basis .
 
Abdul Maqsood expected that tomorrow’s session will only procedural, and it may be adjourned to another session to be followed by hearings of the defense witnesses and prosecution witnesses. After that, the pleading sessions will begin with a session for every four reformists.
 
Seven reformists are tried in absentia because they are abroad. They include the hajji Fathi Al Khouli, more than 87 years, who left Egypt fifty years ago and engineer Youssef Nada who has been running his overseas business since the 1960s.
 
It is worth mentioning the Egyptian reformist Hassan Zalat is still kept in the intensive care unit at Al-Qasr Al-Aini hospital after he was arrested from his bed shortly after undergoing a serious cardiac surgery.
