On Sunday the Cairo Court of Appeals designated its session on 25 August to examine the case against Muslim Brotherhood leaders accusing them of inciting violence against protesters in front of the Brotherhood’s headquarters in Moqattam.

Supreme Guide of the Brotherhood Mohamed Badie, his Deputy Khairat El-Shater and Member of the Guidance Bureau Mohamed Rashad Bayoumi are accused of inciting murder and assisting the accused murderers Mostafa Abdel Azim, Mohamed Abdel Azim and Atef Abdel Galil. They are all accused of possessing weapons.

El-Shater, Bayoumi and Mostafa Abdel Azim are in custody, while the others remain fugitives.

Chancellor Medhat Edris, member of the technical bureau of the appeals court told state news agency MENA the case will be examined by Judge Mohamed Amin Al-Qarmoty of the South Cairo Criminal Court.

The trial includes 29 another defendants accused of using excessive force and terrorising residents of the Moqattam area. The prosecution accused them of using knives and live bullets to threaten residents.

They are also accused of violently attacking a police officer on duty; the defendants allegedly threw an incendiary bomb at Captain Shady Mohamed Sabry to stop him from arresting them.

Several protests were held in front of the Brotherhood’s headquarters in Moqattam during ousted president Mohamed Morsi’s reign; the most violent was in March, when at least 200 were injured after a protest dubbed by opposition as “Reclaiming Deginity”.

    It is military-coup-plotters who are inciting violence, not the Muslim Brotherhood leaders.
