Egypt: MB Leader Banned From Travel
Egypt: MB Leader Banned From Travel
Saturday, August 12,2006 00:00

The Egyptian authorities on Saturday August 12, 2006 banned MB leader Dr. Ali Abdul Fattah from traveling to Beirut with a delegation affiliated to the Doctors’ Syndicate Relief Committee, although Abdul Fattah is the Syndicate managing director. In a statement to Ikhwanweb, Dr. Abdul Fattah described the authorities’ decision as "a violation of public freedoms as well as a step back which obstructs the popular relief role played by civil society toward the Lebanese people". He vowed to file a lawsuit against the Egyptian authorities since he is not a defendant in any crime and was not officially banned by the Attorney General.


The Egyptian government adopts this policy with members of the opposition, especially of the Muslim Brotherhood, as was the case with other MB leaders including Dr. Essam Al-Erian(now detained) and former MP Gamal Heshmat.
