The Giza Criminal Court resumed today the so-called "Muslim Brotherhood international organisation case" in which charges were pressed against five Muslim Brotherhood members for money laundering and financing Brotherhood activities.

The court listened to the lawyer defending the Syrian national Gaber Qashlag, who has been accused of providing Egyptian Brotherhood member Osama Soliman, medical doctor and owner of a money exchange company, with transferred money.  

The lawyer said the money was transferred for purely business purposes and showed the court proof of investments made in real estate located on the Cairo-Alexandria Road. He added that Qatar's ruling family was also involved in the investments.   

Selim El-Awa, who is Soliman's lawyer for this case, used Qashlag's lawyer's arguments as proof that Soliman has nothing to do with the case in which the four others are accused. The four additional defendants are Ashraf Mohamed, Wagdy Ghoneim, Awad El-Qerany and Ibrahim Mounir, who are being tried in absentia.
