The Administrative Court headed by Judge Mohamed Attia, Vice Chairman of State’s Council Court , will rule July 2nd in the appeal by six of the Muslim Brotherhood"s leaders who were sentenced by military tribunals more than three years ago
The MB defense team stressed in an appeal today before the court that the case is merely political, arguing that the government"s second litigant party submitted today new documents proving that the defendants are primarily politicians belonging to an opposition group
Meanwhile, Lawyer Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud said: Documents were submitted by the government to the court arguing that they are politicians, something the defense team has sought over the last period.
The defense team had hoped the lawsuits were delayed so that they could be decided on in the same session in which Parole release is scheduled on July 7th for seven MB figures who were sentenced by martial courts, he stated. However the court adjourned it to another hearing on July 12.
It is worth mentioning that the defense team of the MB leaders who were sentenced in a martial court submitted 13 appeals for parole for all 13 of those referred to the martial court. Nevertheless, 6 appeals in the last session have been postponed to today"s session, while the remaining 7 are delayed for ruling on July 7th.
In another case the same court decided today to postpone to July 7th the lawsuit of Dr. Mohammed Badi a member of the MB Executive Bureau, filed against the Interior Minister as he was banned from traveling abroad.
