The son of leading Muslim Brotherhood member Mahmoud Ghozlan was arrested last Monday while filming his detained brother on his way to prison, said Giza security directorate in press statements.

According to Al-Ahram’s Arabic website, Yahiaa Mahmoud Ghozlan, 20, was found to have four mobile phones with uploaded footage and photos from brotherhood rallies as well recorded messages from his detained brother allegedly thanking the brotherhood's leadership.

Egyptian authorities issued an arrest warrant as well as travel ban for Mahmoud Ghozlan, the Muslim Brotherhood official spokesperson last year. He is being accused of inciting violence on several occasions after the ousting of Mohamed Morsi.

The official spokesperson of the Brotherhood, which was designated a terrorist organisation last December 2013, has yet to have been arrested.

In the past few weeks, several videos have surfaced displaying detainees such as Mohamed Soltan complaining about prison conditions.

Last week a video for currently detained leading Brotherhood figure, Mohamed El-Beltagy was leaked which showed Beltagy in court saying that the Brotherhood made a mistake for trusting untrustworthy people and apparatuses.

The faces of the Muslim brotherhood terrorists consistently say it all.
Always angry, mean spirited, evil, vile, falsely assuming the beard gives them a religious cover to hide behind.
