Dr Abdul-Mawgood Dardery, spokesman for the Freedom and Justice Party’s Foreign Relations Committee, said the putschist regime’s Interior Ministry is determined to continue demonizing the Muslim Brotherhood with false accusations and utter lies all the while.
"Today (Sunday), the junta-appointed regime’s Ministry of Interior accused the Muslim Brotherhood of assassinating the Public Prosecutor (Hisham Barakat, who was killed on June 29, 2015). They are trying to cover up their own crimes, especially the killing of hundreds of good Egyptian youths and Italian student Giulio Regeni.
"We are committed to a totally peaceful approach. These accusations are absurd and false. We are facing a brutally repressive military coup with legitimate peaceful struggle. We simply want to reinstate the democratic process and mechanisms and safeguard freedoms and rights."
Meanwhile, Dr Gamal Heshmat, speaker of the legitimate Egyptian Parliament Abroad, said: "Press statements with neither investigation or evidence are just another episode in the series demonizing the Muslim Brotherhood by accusing it of an imaginary role in violence that, in fact, is committed and caused by the illegitimate coup regime. Their heinous maneuvers have been exposed, with their crimes escalating".
