KUWAIT CITY, Aug 22: The eight members of the Muslim Brotherhood cell who were arrested in Kuwait upon a request of the Egyptian Interpol and deported to Egypt at the request of the Egyptian government are said to have made ‘dangerous confessions’ and revealed the names of terrorist elements operating in three Egyptian governorates of Al-Beheira, Al-Fayoum and Dakahlia, reports Al- Qabas daily quoting Egyptian security sources.
The source pointed out that one of the elements is said to have admitted in detail how the network transferred money from Kuwait without having access to the exchange companies and banks in Kuwait and Egypt which affected the Egyptian economy before Egypt took decision to float the pound.
The sources stressed that the investigations with members of the Kuwait cell headed by Abu Bakr al-Fayoumi have dropped a bombshell by revealing they were in contact with the ‘Brothers’ of Yemen, and that Al-Fayoumi was in contact with one of the members last April.
The cell leader admitted that he planned to travel to Turkey to meet the Brotherhood members to receive information – according to his confessions – about the Egyptians and Tunisians living in Kuwait.
He said the goal was to recruit as many of them as possible to join the group. Al-Fayoumi confirmed he was about to migrate to Turkey and not return to Kuwait again and that the members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Turkey were in contact to hire specific elements to work in the field of charity.
The cell members revealed one of the Egyptians, identified only as Ayman T., joined the group and then left Kuwait for Turkey and from there to Syria to join the terrorist organizations.
