CAIRO – CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian prosecutor's office has corrected the name of a prominent Saudi cleric charged along with four other members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood with money laundering and raising funds abroad.
A prosecutor's statement Monday identified the Saudi suspect as Awadh al-Qarani. Last week, the prosecutor's office incorrectly identified him as a Saudi cleric with a similar name, Aedh al-Qarani, who has denied any connection with the Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group.
The statement said the wanted Awadh al-Qarani had taught at a Saudi university and is now a businessman.
On Wednesday, Prosecutor General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud ordered the five suspects to be tried by a State Security Emergency court.
Four of the suspects are at large.
