Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie has been imprisoned for an additional 15 days pending investigations on charges of involvement in inciting the burning of 6th of October City’s police department.
The burning took place after the violent dispersal of the pro-Mohamed Morsy sit-in on 14 August. It left at least two people dead and three policemen injured.
Badie faces charges of murder and attempted murder, heading a terrorist gang aiming to disturb security and public peace, preventing state institutions and public authorities from exercising their work, attacking police facilities and trying to occupy them, inciting armed elements to kill citizens, providing ammunition and firearms and resisting authorities.
The investigations of the National Security Agency said that on 11 August, many radical Islamists held a secret meeting in one of the halls attached to Rabea al-Adaweya mosque, in which they agreed on the attacks that would be carried out if the Interior Ministry dispersed the sit-ins .
Badie denied all charges against him and described the National Security investigations as “fabricated.” He demanded an investigation into the killing of his son Ammar in the Ramsis Street events and the burning of his house by unknown assailants in Beni Suef.
