Egypt acquits 49 suspected Muslim Brotherhood members | Al Bawaba

The case relates to events that date back to Aug. 30, 2013 when protests erupted in al-Goumhuriya street in Damanhour city two weeks after security forces violently dispersed the Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda sit-ins.

The sit-in at Rabaa al-Adaweya was in support of elected Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Mursi, who was ousted by the military in July 2013 following mass protests against his rule.

The Brotherhood leaders, some of whom were sentenced in absentia, include former parliamentarians Gamal Heshmat, Osama Suleiman and Maher Hazeema as well as Mohammed Suweidan, who headed the Brotherhood’s administrative office in Beheira province.

The prosecution had accused the defendants of attempted murder, belonging to a banned group, preventing state institutions from performing their duties, infringing on the personal freedom of fellow citizens, harming national unity, attacking security personnel and practicing terrorism with the aim of overthrowing the regime.
