State Security Services launched a wide crackdown today at dawn against three Muslim Brotherhood high-ranking figures in Cairo. Among those arrested are Dr. Abdel-Moneim Abu el-Fotouh, Member of the Executive Bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Secretary-General of the Arab Doctors’ Federation, Judge Fathi Lashin, former legal adviser to the Ministry of Justice and Expert on Islamic Financial Transactions and Dr. Jamal Abdul Salam, Head of the Emergency Relief Committee of the Arab Doctors’ Federation and the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate in the 2005 elections.
 
It is worth mentioning that Abu Fotouh graduated from the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, with general grade of “Very High Achievement” however, he  was deprived of becoming a lecturer at the same University due to his famous debate with President Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat when he visited Cairo University. As the leader of the Cairo University Student Union at the time, he confronted then-President Anwar Sadat on national television and condemned his regime as corrupt.

He was arrested in the 1981 September detentions, and then tried in one of  the Muslim Brotherhood military tribunals. He was jailed in 1996 for 5 years.
 
Meanwhile, Dr. Jamal Abdul Salam was released on February 5th, after he had been detained for more than 50 days because of his efforts in supporting the Palestinians in Gaza.
