The lawyer of the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Badie, has said that he is refusing to deal with the investigators, who tried to question him for more than eight hours.

Speaking to Al-Jazeera Mubashir Misr, Badie’s lawyer Mohamed Gharib said that the public prosecutor is accusing Badie of more than 12 charges, including: leading a “banned” group, trying to carry out a coup against the current regime and inciting violence at Al-Giza.

Gharib explained that Badie has denied all criminal charges against him because he believes the investigation is illegal. He said that the public prosecutor, who represents the coup authorities and with whom Badie has a political dispute, demanded the investigation.

He also said that Badie also has a dispute with the interior ministry after the killing of his son, the martyr Ammar Badie, aged 35.

According to Gharib, while Badie is refusing to answer any question about him personally, he did answer and explain everything that related to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gharib said that the lawyers are calling for an end to all the fabricated criminal charges against Badie and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders, stressing that all of these charges were politically motivated.
