The arraignment states that Ola al-Qaradawi was executing a “hostile plot” prepared by the fugitive leaders of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. The plot is aimed at creating illegal channels for suspicious transactions. The funds would be used in financing violence and vandalism activities that would target the state institutions concurrently.
The defendant is also accused of being involved in facilitating communication between the brotherhood’s jailed leaders and loose members so that the former would give the latter orders pertinent to financial support for hostile activities. That was during her imprisonment as she was being prosecuted in custody for joining a terror group that is the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.
The prosecution ordered her detention for 15 days pending investigation. Ola al-Qaradawi was working at Qatar’s Embassy in Cairo as she carries the Qatari nationality.
