Cairo: A welcome court order for the release of 42 Muslim Brotherhood members.
Cairo’s Criminal Court issued a release order to 42 members of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement who were arrested earlier this year. Defense lawyers for the group filed appeals challenging the arrest orders. The detainees fell victim to the regime’s vicious crackdowns on individual members of the Movement with the, barbaric invasions on homes and private businesses, confiscating of personal belongings and unjust arrests.
Detainees were from numerous Egyptian governorates including, Sharqeya, Monofeya, Dakahleya and Port Said.
