Egypt’s public prosecutor began an investigation into two Muslim Brotherhood members who were deported from Lebanon yesterday, the Muslim Brotherhood legal committee reported.

On April 3, the Lebanese authorities stopped the chairman of the Freedom and Justice Party Legal Committee Mokhtar Ashry at Rafic Hariri International Airport and the manager of Ahrar 25 satellite channel of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mousaad El-Barbari, who was waiting for him outside the airport, then deported them to Cairo.

According to a source in the Muslim Brotherhood legal committee “El-Barbari was sent from the airport to Al-Agouza police department in Cairo to investigate him over his involvement in the case known as the ‘Rabaa operating room’.”

Al-Barbari and a further 50 Muslim Brotherhood members, including the organisation’s leader Mohammed Badie, face charges of; “establishing an operating room to face off the state and coordinating with the Brotherhood’s electronic committee to fabricate images of dead and wounded protestors to claim they fell during an army crackdown on the Rabaa Al-Adawiya square sit-in.”
