Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mongey was given a 10-year sentence by a military court in Suez on Monday on charges of inciting violence and vandalising military property.
Egypt’s military-backed interim Government has cracked down on the Brotherhood since the July 3 coup that deposed President Mohamed Morsi. Hundreds of the group’s leaders and members have been arrested, and the Brotherhood’s political outlets have been declared illegal.
Senior Brotherhood leaders, including Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie, face charges of inciting violence during clashes in the months before the coup.
Last month, a Suez military court handed down a life sentence to a Muslim Brotherhood member and sentenced 50 others to prison on charges of attacking military soldiers.
