30 alleged members of the Muslim Brotherhood, 10 Emiratis and 20 Egyptians, will face the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi tomorrow after being accused of secretly establishing a branch for the Muslim Brotherhood organisation in the UAE. six will be tried in absentia as their whereabouts are unknown.

Judicial sources told UAE's Ittihad newspaper that there was a connection between the suspects and members of a secret organisation that were convicted last July.

The group has been accused to raising funds for the banned organization and also posting photos of a UAE security institution. They were monitored providing logistical support for the headquarters in Egypt and other branches, as well as recruiting new members and sending donations.
