Military Court Rejects Al-Mawlawi’s Release Requestإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The Military Tribunal rejected on Friday Islamist Shadi al-Mawlawi’s request to be released from detention.
The request has been rejected by Military Examining Magistrate Nabil Wehbeh and Government Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr.
A new session of investigations has been scheduled for Tuesday.
Al-Mawlawi’s arrest on Saturday in the northern city of Tripoli by General Security agents had infuriated the city’s Islamists and sparked deadly clashes that have left at least 12 people dead and more than 100 wounded.
His supporters have vowed to escalate the situation if he is not released.
Al-Mawlawi was arrested on charges of belonging to a terrorist organization, but his supporters say he was targeted because of his help for Syrian refugees fleeing to Lebanon.
