Once again prosecutors postponed the hearing of Eng. Khayrat el-Shater and his companions' appeals. A later date November 5 was scheduled demonstrating yet further injustices to the movement's deputy vice.

 

A prominent defense team including MP Ahmed Abo Baraka, Tarek Mandour, Gamal Boreey, and Ahmed Alhamrawy relayed issues to the judiciary concentrating on the actual fact that ordinary citizens initially should be transferred to customary judicial hearings and not court martialed emphasizing that this in itself is a violation to the constitutions' charters.

 

Abdul Monem Abdul Maqsoud the MB's lawyer asserted in a statement to Ikhwanonline that "This is a text book case of insistent and bigotry defiance of the law. The issue of warrants, arrests, court martialling, confiscating of livelihoods, and handing of harsh sentence are a loud message aimed at deterring the Muslim Brotherhood Movement's cause".

 

The case is obviously laced politically as a warning to all who dare question the regimes' authority. Khayrat el-Shater and his companions gave been arrested for nearly three years and the charade continued on April 15 2008 when they were served  unjust and cruel terms ranging from 3-10 years. Abdul Maqsoud continued "The unfair referral to martial court only proves the despicable measures that the regime insists on adopting where citizens are denied their rights. It is high time that the people of Egypt are treated fairly and given the freedom they deserve since freedom is a right and not a favour. The Muslim brotherhood has been on the receiving end of the brutal violations and unjust methods of the state for much too long. Despite this the Movement will continue in its cause in promoting reform and prosperity for Egypt and the entire Muslim world".
