The Giza Criminal Court will start Monday the retrial of Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Supreme Guide Mohamed Badei and 36 other MB leaders and members over charges of plotting to burn state facilities and churches and kidnap state officials.
The case is publicly known as the "Rabaa task force".
The Court of Cassation, headed by Judge Adel al-Shourbagy, canceled the rulings issued by the criminal court against the defendants in the same case, sentencing some to death and others to life sentence and prison terms.
The court ordered the retrial of the arrested 37 defendants, out of 51 defendants in the case.
