CAIRO – Egypt’s security services have announced the capture of a Muslim Brotherhood network in downtown Cairo.

The network was led by a Turkish man and prepared negative reports that contained “false and fabricated information about the political, economic, security and human rights situations in Egypt,” according to security forces.

The information was aimed at tarnishing the country’s image inside and outside the country, with the reports sent to the group’s handlers in Turkey.

An official statement said the National Security Sector monitored an apartment in the Bab Al-Luq area that was being used by a Muslim Brotherhood group to prepare negative reports with Turkey’s support. The house was being used as a center for their activity, under the cover of SITA Studies Company.

The premises were raided and Helmy Moamen Mustafa Bilji, the Turkish financial director of the group, and three other members were arrested. Legal steps are being taken against them.
