Egypt's Zagazig Criminal Court has referred the case of seven members of the terrorist-designated Muslim Brotherhood organization to the country's grand mufti for his non-binding opinion on sentencing them to death over the killing of a police conscript in the Nile Delta Governorate of Sharqiya in 2015.


The court set the sentencing of the defendants for 12 July.

Once the court issues its final verdict in the case, the defendants have the right to appeal.
