Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood members to be tried by military court

On 6 February, President Mubarak ordered, under the 1981 emergency law, the trial by a military tribunal of 40 members of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest Islamic political group. The members are charged with money laundering and financing of a terrorist group. The Government has reportedly arrested hundreds of members of the Muslim Brotherhood under the emergency law since December 2006.
