Muslim Brotherhood Leader Badie: One Death Sentence, 76 Years Prison Terms, 34 Cases Under Investigation
After five sham trials, Dr Mohamed Badie, the Chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, has been sentenced to death, and received three life sentences (25 years each) as well as one one-year jail sentence, while 34 more fabricated cases remain in court.
Dr Mohamed Badie, the eighth Muslim Brotherhood Chairman, took charge of the group on January 16, 2010, succeeding Mohamed Mahdi Akef, a professor of pathology at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Beni Suef, south of Cairo. Military coup forces arrested Dr Badie in August 2013.
The Giza Criminal Court, held at the Police Academy in Torah (south of Cairo), sentenced Dr Badie to life imprisonment – his third life sentence. The court dealt similar life-terms to 14 more Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the fabricated case known as the ‘Al-Bahr Al-Azam clashes’.
On August 30, 2014, the same Giza Criminal Court sentenced to life imprisonment 8 defendants who were present at the court session, including Dr Badie. It also passed 6 death sentences in absentia against 6 others, in the so-called "Istiqama Mosque clashes" case.
Earlier, on June 19, 2014, the court sentenced to death 14 defendants, including Dr Badie, for whom this particular sentence was kindly commuted to life in prison.
On June 21, 2014, Minya Criminal Court (central Egypt) sentenced to death 183 people, including Dr Badie.
On July 5, 2014, Shubra Al-Khaimah Criminal Court (north of Cairo) passed death sentences against 10 Muslim Brotherhood leaders and life prison sentences against 37 others, including Dr Badie.
On April 30, 2014, Cairo Criminal Court, held at the Police Academy in the east of Cairo, dealt out one year prison sentences to Dr Badie and 21 others for ‘insulting’ the judiciary.
