Al Mazroui posted the announcement on his Twitter account that he would hand over the amount to anyone who helps locate any of the three top Brotherhood leaders — Essam el-Eryan, Mohamed Al Beltagi and Safwat Hijazi — whose arrests have been ordered by the South Cairo Public Prosecution.

The bounty will be presented in coordination with the Egyptian Interior Ministry, no matter what the informant's nationality or religion is, or even if he/she is one of the Egyptian Interior Ministry's officers or from the Muslim Brotherhood itself.

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Al Mazroui said: “I have allocated the cash reward to cease the bloodshed in Egypt as those three men are the leaders of militants and they are no less dangerous than the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Al Mazroui had earlier donated Dh1 million to Egypt during a public donation campaign to save Egypt from the current economic crisis.
