116 defendants referred to military prosecution for Islamic State connections

Hundreds of defendants across the country standing trial for similar accusations


The High State Security Prosecution referred 116 defendants to military prosecution on charges of contacting the militant group Islamic State.

The military prosecution will continue interrogating the defendants, who are accused of forming a “terrorist” group that aims to confront the state.

The defendants allegedly possessed, according to state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram, flyers inciting against the state, weapons, and explosives.

Under the military trials, the sessions will be held in secrecy and in a military zone where the media is not allowed. Several lawyers in military trials cite difficulties in reaching out to their clients and difficulty in acquiring case paperwork.
