Mohamed Beltagy

Mohamed Beltagy (born 1963) is an Egyptian physician and Muslim Brotherhood politician.[1] He was a Member of Parliament from 2005 to 2010, and is currently the general secretary of the Freedom and Justice Party.[2]

He was on board the MV Mavi Marmara during the 2010 Gaza flotilla raid.[3]

After the 2013 Egyptian coup d'état of President Morsi, prosecutors ordered Beltagy's arrest on 10 July 2013.[4] On 14 July 2013 Egypt's military-appointed prosecutor general Hisham Barakat ordered Beltagy's assets to be frozen.[5]

Mohamed el-Beltagy's 17-year-old daughter Asmaa el-Beltagy was killed when the Egyptian security forces stormed two protest camps occupied by supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi in Cairo. She was shot in the back and chest.[6]

Beltagy was arrested on 29 August 2013 by security forces in Giza.[7] On 29 October 2013, a three-judge panel at Cairo Criminal Court stepped down from the proceedings, citing "uneasiness" over the trial.[8] On 7 December 2013, Cairo's Criminal Court refused to return a verdict and recused itself in a case involving Beltagy and Safwat Hegazi citing "embarrassment" as a reason for its decision.[9] On 11 December 2013, a second panel of judges withdrew from the trial.[10]
