The Muslim Brotherhood defense team representing Engineer Khairat al-Shater, Deputy Chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, and four MB leaders who were convicted in the Military Court case in 2008 described the exclusions of July’s release as blatant evidence that the regime is discriminatory against the political detainees ignoring and violating the rights and freedoms of honorable citizens.

In its statement the defense accused the regime with applying double standards regarding the presidential pardon on prisoners, as it excluded prisoners of conscience who were convicted in political cases while only releasing prisoners serving criminal sentences. It added that while  honorable men were being tried before military courts and denied  rights to defense or appeal, others with offensive  crimes of conspiracy, corruption and guilty of killing thousands of citizens were being tried before a conventional judiciary and  guaranteed the right to defense.

The defense team condemned this decision stressing that the political detainees had spent half their sentences and currently suffer from deteriorating health which requires their immediate release. The lawyers highlighted that no evidence was brought forward against them and in fact there had been numerous court acquittals issued by Civilian court clearing them of all the charges leveled against them.

The statement stressed that the exclusion from the presidential pardon, disrespect to the release orders and the prevention of their families from having access to their money are completely unjustified. It explained that their exclusion comes in violation to the Egyptian law and constitution as well as international covenants on human rights where in the Egyptian Constitution, Article 40 stresses on the principle of equality and Article 42 stresses on the importance of protecting the dignity of humans.

The defense team called on President Mubarak to review the presidential pardon decree in order to guarantee the immediate release of the reformers and called for the release of all political detainees, particularly the prisoners of conscience who were tried in exceptional military courts.

muslim brotherhood island rasta
Its a wonder how your culture greatly differs from the west.Total opposites we are. I,being of western upbringing with my islander roots and teachings, truly believe if the east cuts off their own peoples hands for stealing, gruesome as it is to me, thats your beliefs. Do as you will over there.BUT, keep it over there. Its so so weird to me how there are westerners that side with sharia law. That being the case, i am new to the political and especially the world scene but i promise the east this, your beliefs will NEVER take hold here.I am not too into church because of my wrongdoings, but i know for a fact that WE AMERICANS will fight & beat your teachings back to you. Most Americans dont have a clue to whats going on & if your way tries to be a part of the American system, they will awaken and toss everything muslim out of our beautiful country. I am writing this to let whoever is able to read this to be informed that even those who follow obama will backhand his leadership so quick due to the unAMERICAN ways. The American way is truth, justice,fairness,and equality. If the east sees different, let it be known that our officials are doing wrong & it is safe to say that we would kick whomever is breaking our laws out & even jail time. But we must know. Get proof & show us and you will see the difference between us.GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN, and peace be unto all. Extremists?Really? Take care of your family why dont ya....
