Muslim Brotherhood businessman Hassan Malek does not show on a court session for his detention hearing

Brotherhood businessman Hassan Malek failed to attend a court session to renew his detention on charges of membership in a terrorist group, and (intentionally) harming the economy and national security. Egypt’s Supreme State Security Prosecution charged Malek with several crimes, including harming national security and undermining the state’s economic pillars.

He was also accused of consenting to hold several meetings with fugitive Muslim Brotherhood leaders abroad, where they discussed finding alternative ways and methods to protect the group’s financial sources.

The scheme (they came up with) was based on smuggling foreign currency out of Egypt with the goal of escalating the instability of the dollar exchange rate and ultimately ruining the economy.
