Khairat Al-Shater faces new charges of "fleeing from prison"

Khairat al-Shater’s daughter, Sara, has revealed that the Egyptian Public Prosecution has levelled new charges against the deputy Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood.

On her Facebook page, Sara wrote, “The new charge claim that he fled from Wadi el-Natrun prison during the January revolution (2011). They came to this conclusion following investigations into my beloved father.”

Sara mocked the decision, “fleeing from Wadi el-Natrun! And during January 25 Revolution! This is his crime!”

She also said, “To those who have followed the story, my father was imprisoned in Al-Mazraa prison, which is in Torah. No prisoner fled from there during the revolution and my father was given a presidential amnesty in March 2011.”

Referring to the Egyptian Interior Ministry’s description of the anti-coup protesters as having been “mentally impaired” Sara sarcastically questioned who “in the end, was mentally impaired?” given the contradictions of the new charges levelled against her father.
