 The Arabic Network for Human Rights today strongly denounced the escalating campaign against members and activists of Muslim Brothers in Egypt, as security arrested about 15 members of the group, including Mahmoud Ezzat, professor at med school , Zagazig university and deputy group leader , Abdul Rahman Abd AlBarr theology professor at Mansura university , Essam ElErian former MP, and 12 others. They were detained on Monday 8/2/2010 break of day. Security ,acting normally ,did not declare reasons for the arrests.

This raid carried out by security forces today, is one of the fiercest and most violent of all raids that all have in common lack of legal arrest reasons. It is turning classic that security would arrest leaders and members of Muslim Brothers for no reason except being members of the group. Those detainees are indeed on the long list prisoners of conscience in Egypt.

The Arabic Network as it condemns these arrests, stresses on the illegality of these measures and on the right of any citizen to endorse any ideology or join any religious or political movement , as long as no felony was committed. ANHRI demands security to declare reasons of detention or any crime they have committed . ANHRI also requests security to stop using fabricated charges such as “joining an illegal group..” and the likes, those which have become ridiculous ,repeated and scornful.

Some of the detainees of today:

  1. Mahmoud Ezzat, PhD
  2. Essam ElErian, PhD
  3. Abdul Rahman Abd AlBarr , PhD
  4. Ahmed Abbas, PhD
  5. Mohammad Saad Alioua, PhD
  6. Mohammad Abdul-Ghani, PhD
  7. Walid Shalabi, writer
  8. Ihab Ibrahim , PhD
  9. Ali Abdel Rahim, PhD
  10. Khalaf Thabet Haridi
  11. Ibrahim AlSaid.
  12. Ahmed AbdelAti.
  13. Mustafa ElSherbatly
  14. Massad Kotb.
  15. Mohammed AlDesooqi , PhD
