Ola El-Qaradawi was arrested in July 2017 with her husband Hossam Khalaf, a leading member of the Islamist Wasat Party, and have been investigated for joining a banned group and terror-related charges.
Ola El-Qaradawi, a 55-year-old housewife, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Qatar University and completed her masters at the University of Texas-Austin in the United States.
She is the daughter of Youssef El-Qaradawi, the Islamic cleric who resides in Qatar. He is considered the spiritual leader of the terrorist-designated Muslim Brotherhood and is wanted in Egypt in connection with various criminal cases related to terrorism and inciting against the government.
Cairo has been demanding that Qatar hand over Youssef El-Qaradawi, 90, to stand trial in Egypt.
