On Wednesday 27/12/2006, Cairo provisional detention administration prevented several families and children of detained Muslim Brotherhood members from visiting their loved ones, although the families carried valid permits and had the right provided by the law for a visit after 11 days of provisional detention. The families stayed outside the prison premises in severe cold weather from 7.30 AM till 12.00 noon, after prison authorities informed them that there was an inspection of the prison facilities underway, however, families of other prisoners who don’t belong to the Muslim Brotherhood were allowed to visit their relatives!

By this senseless act during a major Islamic holiday where families normally get together to celebrate, the Egyptian government contiuned to violate the most basic human rights especially after shutting down companies that were the only source of income for hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members under the pretext of false accusations and groundless allegations.

The Muslim Brotherhood condemns this inhumane behavior by the Egyptian government, which is added to its long list of  tyrannical suppression and abusive treatment of its political opponents. We urge Human Rights and civil society organizations to react positively towards this humane issue, and demand the Egyptian government and its Interior Ministry to take into consideration the human rights while dealing with these noble well-reputed citizens.
