Who is Ibrahim Munir?
Ibrahim Munir was born in Giza, Egypt, on June 1st, 1937. His full name is Mustafa Ahmed Ibrahim Munir. After the attempted assassination of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser in the 1950s, he joined the Muslim Brotherhood at a young age and was given a life term in jail.
After being freed in 1975, Munir traveled to the Persian Gulf before relocating to the UK in the early 1980s. His request for political asylum was approved.
