CAIRO (AP) — The next phase in Egypt's wide-scale crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood since the military's July ouster of President Mohammed Morsi is expected to be a massive wave of trials.
A large number of senior leaders could go to jail, some for life. Charges include inciting violence and terrorism. Morsi is scheduled for trial next month.
Leaders may also be charged with fomenting violence in post-coup protests by Morsi's Islamist supporters demanding his reinstatement. Security forces have cracked down heavily on the protests and have killed hundreds of Morsi backers.
From nine to more than a dozen cases so far are being put together, each with multiple defendants, according to a prosecution official and Brotherhood lawyers. One rights lawyer predicts around 200 Brotherhood leaders and senior officials could eventually end up in court.
