The Supreme State Security Prosecution in Cairo ordered the detention of 13 MB leaders for 15 days on charges of money laundry collected from a terrorism crime designed to conceal and disguise its source and nature.
 
The prosecution also charged the detainees with affiliation to a banned group [MB] using terrorism to achieve its goals, possession of publications promoting the group’s ideology in addition to providing the group with material support with knowledge of its purposes.
 
Over the last several days security forces arrested 13 of MB leaders including Dr. Osama Nasr (member of the MB Guidance Bureau), Dr. Hossam Abu Bakr (official of the Administrative MB Office East Cairo), Dr. Ibrahim Mostafa, Eng.

For his part, Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud (lawyer for the MB) emphasized that the intention behind the case is to undermine MB activities and to prevent it from participating in public and political life based on trumped up charges intended to divert the attention of the public opinion from businessmen close to the government who smuggle billions outside the country and import corrupt wheat shipments.
 
He stressed that the charge of money laundry is the irony, especially after an Exceptional Military Court has acquitted the MB leaders of the same charge and the seized publications are already in the market and its possession by anyone is not a crime!
 
He added “it is illogical that a group which has 86 members in the Parliament and members of the governing bodies of associations and teaching clubs in addition to its strong presence in the Egyptian politics is said to be banned”.
