The Court of Cassation upheld a verdict Monday to add 241 defendants to the list of terrorist figures for five years in the case no.1000 for 2017، known as the “Wilayat Sinai case”.
The Cairo Criminal Court ordered that the 241 defendants be added to the list for a five-year period on May 22.
The prosecution had charged the suspects with joining a terrorist group established contrary to law، assaulting members of the Armed Forces and police، targeting state establishments، and possessing weapons and ammunition without a license.
They are also accused of forming 43 terror cells and committing 63 terrorist operations in collaboration with other 314 people of the militant group.
Wilayat Sinai (Sinai Province) is an offshoot of Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis group، which emerged in North Sinai after the 2011 upheaval، but orchestrated major attacks following the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
