Court acquits 16 Brotherhood protesters

Boulaq Aboel Ela Misdemeanor Court acquitted, Sunday, 16 defendants belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood from charges of assembling, thuggery, and disrupting public transport on the anniversary of the 6 October War victory.

The defense requested the acquittal of defendants due to the vagueness of the charges.
 
The court of first instance had sentenced the defendants for 3 years in prison.
 
The security forces had arrested the defendants during clashes between pro-Muslim Brotherhood protesters and security forces on the anniversary of the 6 October War victory.
