Egypt’s prosecutor-general called on Interpol on Saturday to arrest members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are either wanted in criminal cases or already have verdicts issued against them in absentia.

Prosecutor Hisham Barakat has also requested the renewal of the Interpol red notices against the Brotherhood members, especially those fleeing in Qatar and Turkey, Al-Ahram’s Arabic website reported.

Barakat’s decision comes in the wake of reports that Qatar, a strong supporter of the Brotherhood, has asked fleeing Brotherhood members to leave the Gulf state.

The Masr Al-Arabiya news website, which is close to the Brotherhood, quoted Brotherhood sources confirming that Islamic preacher Wagdi Ghoneim, in addition to Amr Darrag, Gamal Abdel-Sattar, Essam Teleima, Ashraf Badr El-Din, Mahmoud Hussein and Hamza Zawbaa — all either members of the Brotherhood or its now defunct political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) — were asked to leave the country. Turkish state news agency Anadolu also reported the same information.

Former FJP figure Darrag released a statement, published by the Brotherhood’s official website website Ikhwanweb, commenting: "In order to avoid causing any embarrassment for the state of Qatar, which we found to be a very welcoming and supportive host, some symbols of the Muslim Brotherhood and its political wing — the Freedom and Justice Party — who were asked by authorities to move their residence outside the State of Qatar, have now honoured that request."

Interpol previously collaborated with Egypt to arrest Brotherhood figures on the run, including Akram El-Shaer and Mohamed El-Qabouty, arrested in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait respectively in March.

Egypt's prosecutor-general had previously asked for international arrests of fugitives accused of orchestrating violence in Egypt following the ouster of Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

In December the Egyptian interim government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist organisation, a decision that was upheld by a court order in February.
