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.
