Eight Muslim Brotherhood, Other Leaders Moved to High-Security Prison, in Violation of Law
The military ‘democracy’ in Egypt shows as much respect for the law as it did for the Constitution, transferring 8 Islamist leaders to the toughest jail in the country, pending investigations into false charges.

Earlier today (Friday July 19), Egypt’s security apparatus transferred leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) as well as some other political figures, who were detained after the military coup, to a high-security prison, although they are in custody pending investigations, in violation of the law.

The detainees who have been transferred are: Mohamed Mahdi Akef, the Brotherhood’s former Chairman; Dr. Mohamed Rashad Bayoumi, the Brotherhood’s deputy head; Khairat Al-Shater, the Brotherhood’s Vice-Chairman; Dr. Mohamed Saad Katatni, FJP Chairman and former Speaker of Egyptian Parliament; Dr. Helmi Al-Gazzar, leading member of the FJP; Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud, Brotherhood lawyer; Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail; and MP Mohamed Al-Omda.
