Putschists in Egypt are continuing their atrocious violations of basic human rights and rule of law, and escalating the crackdown against opponents of the military coup. On 17th September, Dr. Mahmoud Abu Zaid, senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau, Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim, senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau, Gehad El-Haddad, the English-language spokesperson for the Muslim Brotherhood, Dr. Ahmed Diab, Member of the dissolved parliament representing the Freedom and Justice Party, Hisham Ismail Younes, Brotherhood official in Cairo, and Dr. Hossam Abu Bakr, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau- former Governor of Qalyobiya, were arrested in Cairo, in an attempt to silence every voice calling for freedom and justice in Egypt.

Thousands of peaceful anti-coup activists throughout the country have been arbitrarily arrested on trumped up charges, and sent to prison without due process. The military junta in Egypt has imposed emergency laws since the bloody coup of July 3, 2013, and civilian political prisoners are subject to military trials with no right to appeal. Yesterday three anti-coup protesters in Suez were sentenced to 3 years in prison for "chants likely to harm national interest".

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Anti-Coup Alliance strongly condemn the illegal practices by the fascist regime in Egypt, and demand the immediate release of all political prisoners. More Egyptians, including many of those who participated in the June 30 protests against President Morsi, are beginning to realise that their aspirations for more freedoms and democracy have been hijacked by a ruthless military regime that has brought Egypt back to an era worse than that of Hosni Mubarak. History will teach putschists that killing, torture and arrests will not succeed in frightening or silencing the millions of patriotic Egyptians calling for freedom and democracy. We will continue our relentless peaceful fight for freedom, legitimacy, and justice till Egypt is free.
