Court Orders Release of Senior MB Leader Mahmoud Ghozlan
North Cairo court ordered the release of Dr. Mahmoud Ghozlan, member of the MB Executive Bureau, and seven other Muslim Brotherhood(MB) members today. State security forces arrested Dr. Mahmoud Ghozlan in addition to number of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates on March 6 as a part of the government’s continuous crackdown against the MB group which had harshly increased with the approach of municipal elections.
The seven other leaders freed today are Hamdi Ibrahim, Abdel-Wahed Abdel-Mageed, Dr. Mohie Al-Zayet, Khairy Abbas, Khaled Al-Serawy, Gaber Mehanna, and Maged Al-Zomor, office manager of the MB Parliamentary Bloc. It is unclear whether the government will release Ghozlan in accordance with court order or keep him in custody
