CAIRO: Egypt’s prosecutor general on Monday referred two Israelis and a Ukrainian accused of arms smuggling to the Emergency Supreme State Security Court, his office said.

The Ukrainian and one Israeli are in custody, while the other Israeli will be tried in absentia, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

One of the Israelis — who are both of Arab origin — crossed the Taba border terminal from Israel into Egypt and was found to be carrying weapons and ammunition in a wooden case, the official MENA news agency reported.

According to London-based rights watchdog Amnesty International, the Emergency Supreme State Security Courts, "like military courts, violate the right to a fair trial and deny defendants the right to appeal."
