Ahmed Aref, Muslim Brotherhood media spokesman, rejected as false rumors alleging the arrest of Dr. Mohamed Badie, Muslim Brotherhood Chairman.
Aref affirmed that the rumors were simply utter lies - the continuation of the deliberate lies and rumors war already underway.
Separately, Ayman Abdel-Ghani, leading member of Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), said in a statement to Ikhwanweb: "Khairat Al-Shater, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Vice-Chairman, has not been arrested.
"There is a continuing security effort to indeed arrest him."
Abdel-Ghani explained that authorities evidently have a vengeful security plan to continuously hunt and prosecute Muslim Brotherhood and FJP leaders, to violate freedoms in a repressive manner painfully reminiscent of the Mubarak regime's blatant and bloody crimes against the Muslim Brotherhood.
