Lawyer: Arrest of Brotherhood Top Leader an Escalation by Putschists Settling Accounts
Lawyer: Arrest of Brotherhood Top Leader an Escalation by Putschists Settling Accounts
Hours ago (on Tuesday, August 20), the Muslim Brotherhood’s 70-year old Chairman Badie was arrested on clearly political trumped up charges, as Egypt’s military rulers press on with their brutal crackdown against all opponents.
Tuesday, August 20,2013 04:26

Ali Kamal, Muslim Brotherhood lawyer, described the arrest of Dr. Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood’s General Guide, as a settling of accounts with the group and its leadership and a new escalation by the coup commanders and collaborators.

"It is well-known that all the charges brought against the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliated political party, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) as well as the leaders of the Anti-Coup, Pro-Democracy National Alliance are implausible fabricated charges with no legally acceptable evidence. What they are facing are nothing but political trumped up charges thinly painted with criminal colors.

"Brotherhood lawyers are waiting for Dr. Badie to appear before prosecutors within 24 hours, so they would attend investigations."
