Freedom and Justice Party Headquarters Sealed Off Without Court Order or Due Process
The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) affirmed that it had cleared its headquarters of all employees since June 27, 2013 in order to avoid bloodshed, after calls were made to burn those headquarters, which already resulted in the torching of many FJP headquarters since that date.
In an official statement, Hussein Ibrahim, FJP Secretary-General, revealed that the FJP’s Mansour Street headquarters, in Cairo, was sealed off with special wax without informing the party of the legal grounds for the action, and without any FJP staff attending the process. In fact, no-one knows who sealed off the building.
The FJP announced it bears no responsibility for any activity in these headquarters since June 27, and indeed places the full responsibility on security apparatus entrusted with the protection of the headquarters and its contents.
"The FJP condemns violence, arson and all crimes and illegal actions. The party will take all legal actions as necessary."
