The Executive Director of the Egyptian National Council for Women refused to meet a delegation of the relatives of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) detainees currently facing a military trial. The delegation included also US mother-turned-anti-war and human rights activist Cindy Sheehan, former congressman Walter A Fauntry plus Mahdi Bray, the executive director of Mass Freedom Foundation.

Cindy Sheehan, a US congress hopeful and a staunch critic to US president George Bush"s policy, sent a message to Egypt"s First Lady, entitled" From a US Mother to an Egyptian Mother", in which she called on Susan Mubarak to intervene to end the suffering of the wives and children of the MB leaders and members transferred a year ago to the military tribunal although they are civilians.

The aborted meeting was preceded by a vigil staged by relatives of the detained MB leaders in front of the Susan Mubarak-headed National Council for Women. The US human rights activists Cindy Sheehan, Walter A Fauntry, Mahdi Bray and Tiffani Burns, an aide to Sheehan, wanted also to meet other Egyptian top officials to ask them to intervene to end the suffering of the families whose caregivers are unjustly thrown behind bars.

The three-hour vigil that started on Wednesday noon Feb, 13th, 2008, witnessed a huge security presence while Mohsen Radi a member of parliament gave a speech to the protesters. He said that the Muslim Brotherhood will continuously and limitlessly call on all Egyptian officials to stop such an inhumane treatment and bring to an end such a trial.

In the same context, the family of the MB second deputy chairman engineer Khairat Al-Shater who is involved in the case refused to leave the building of the National Council for Women unless they meet any official to show their issue.
