The Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (IHH) made an official appeal to the Egyptian Prosecution on Saturday to meet with Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) leaders who were detained following the military coup in Egypt.
The law delegation of the Turkey-based foundation extended its demand to the Egyptian Prosecution to meet with the detained leaders of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) and the Ikhwan, Ikhwan deputy Khayrat al-Shater, FJP Chairman Saad el-Katatni and former Ikhwan head Mahdi Aqef.
Stating that they would like to give legal assistance to the detained leaders, the delegation demanded an explanation from the Egyptian Prosecution regarding the detention of these individuals in terms of human rights.
Prior to the 2011 Egyptian Revolution which toppled Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood had been outlawed and persecuted for six decades.Last Mod: 13 Temmuz 2013, 18:33
