CAIRO — Five senior members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood have been convicted of money laundering and raising funds abroad, Egypt's official news agency said Saturday.

MENA reported that the Supreme State Criminal Security Court on Saturday sentenced the sole defendant in custody, Osama Suleiman, to three years in jail. The four other defendants — one of them a Saudi national — were tried in absentia. They received jail terms of five-to-eight years.The ruling cannot be appealed.



The men were charged last April with raising money through conferences in England under the pretext that the funds were for Islamic charities.
