Morsi prison escape referred to Egypt prosecutors

Post by DJKeefy »

Prosecutors to investigate prison escape by Morsi, Saleh, El-Katatni and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders during revolution.

The escape from prison by Muslim Brotherhood leaders – including Mohamed Morsi – during the January 25 Revolution has been referred to state prosecutors by a court in Ismailia.

Essam El-Erian, Sobhi Saleh and Saad El-Katatni were among the senior Brotherhood leaders to escape alongside Morsi, who later became Egyptian president, after unknown assailants stormed Wadi El-Natroun prison during the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in early 2011.

The court called on Interpol to arrest the leaders of Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah, Palestinian group Hamas and Al-Qaeda in Sinai for their alleged role in planning and executing the escape.

Thirty-four senior Brotherhood members – including Saad El-Katatni, the leader of its political wing the Freedom and Justice Party – will also be investigated for espionage.

Eleven thousand prisoners escaped and 13 died during the prison break.

The army soon restocked the empty cells with innocent victims of the revolution though. And a far greater number.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.
