The Muslim Brotherhood denounced the verdict released yesterday by a Cairo court banning the organisation, calling it political and exclusionary.

In a Monday statement, the Muslim Brotherhood denounced the verdict released yesterday by a Cairo court banning the organisation, calling it political and exclusionary.

The reaction to the verdict came in the form of a statement released online, after the court ordered the “the banning of the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab Republic of Egypt [and activities] emanating [from] it, the Organisation and any other institution which branched [from it], belonged to it or received financial support, or any [other] kind, from it.”

The now banned organisation directed its statement towards the military, claiming that its predecessors “had previously failed at banishing the organisation and its members from the Egyptian society, which makes up a vital part of the community.”

The statement read: “[The] court that issued the verdict had no jurisdiction or legal competency to review the legality of it,” and explained that the “judge ordered more than what the claimants asked for… trespassing the original demands which were raised against the association and not the organisation. This is a legal precedent unwitnessed by even the most fascist of regimes.”

The case was raised by Mahmoud Abdallah, member of the Tagammu  Party and attorney at law  .

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a belief, conviction and group which will remain loyal to its country and people…using peaceful means to release its message,” the statement read.

Attorney Alaa Essam, a Tagamoa party member and partner of Mahmoud Abdallah, said: “[The] threat of the Muslim Brotherhood Organisation upon national security is apparent, and thus, requires an urgent court order to halt the danger.”

The Brotherhood also denounced the arrests of the Supreme Guide as well as other high ranking members within the organisation and described the methods used by security forces to disperse protestors as brutal.
