The leaders of the Egyptian regime laud their role in the advancement of Egypt and claim that there will be new culture and close reformation help our country to lead in stability. Those leaders humiliated the honorable people of Egypt.

They do not show honor for a thinker or a politician; they do not revere scholars and creators; and they do not leave a room for a rival group, trend, or movement.

They did not feel satisfied with starving people, causing diseases to spread and people to sink in seas, and killing them in streets, so that they broke into the houses of forty Egyptian honorable men of the professors, scholars, businessmen, and doctors who are members in Muslim Brotherhood group. Whether we agree or disagree with this group or to its approach, it is an Egyptian group, which its roots existed in the Egyptian people eighty years ago. Therefore, our regime, which insists on dominating the arena of politics and controlling the authority, regardless its disasters and absolute failure in managing the country affairs after eliminating party system in Egypt, sometimes by sowing discord among the members of the party and other times by rejecting serious parties.

All political and legal analysts unanimously agreed that the regime falsely accused forty of Muslim Brotherhood leaders, who are known for being moderate, of money laundering and terrorism. Moreover, all political and intellectual trends agreed that this charge is nothing but settling the accounts between the totalitarian regime and a political and intellectual group in our society.


Those leaders demanded the government to stop oppression, to pay back money to its owners, and to use mind and humanness in dealing with this sensitive case, which defamed the reputation of our country allover the world.

 Therefore, if there is an issue circulated by the regime under the name of defaming the reputation of Egypt, the regime should be sued for it.
The journalist Salah Isa, in his speech to Ikhwanweb, stated that the natural rule is that person should be tried before the natural judge, and anything other than this rule is an illegal deed. Military judiciary system was established to deal with specific issues regarding what military members do against the institutions of armed forces and administrative deeds there. Moreover, Even the military figures, when they commit any civil crimes, they are sentenced before their natural civil judge…therefore, what you think about civilians who have nothing to do with the military forces.

 The communists and MBs were referred before to military tribunals which we refused. There is a wide- range opposition to these trials both nationally and internationally. We call for the exclusion of the armed forces of the issues relating to the civil society to keep the relation between the armed forces and the civil society, and maintain the good fame for the Egyptian people and state.

The indicted of the military arts case have been referred to the civil tribunal despite being related to the military wing. Isa said "I see that this is a political case within the conflict between the state and the Muslim Brotherhood. I am confused of the expected sentences, and in the same time hope that the sentences will consider the conditions of the indicted figures. This case has a public opinion internally and externally. In the same time, I don"t see any new events for the trial.


In this regard, Consultant/ Hisham Al-Bastawisi, deputy chief of the court of cassation, said "our attitude is clear and referring the civilians to the military tribunals is condemned by all the international organizations and a violation of the independence of the judiciary, offense to the state, threatens the civilians" rights, as well as a blatant infringement to the international laws and justice regulations.


Alaa" Al-Aswani, great writer, asserted that this procedure is against the simplest rights of the civilians; it is resorted to by the autocratic regimes on the peoples to get rid of the political adversaries. The regime is afraid of the honest judges in order not to acquit the detainees…why do they fear the civil tribunals?


Usama Anwar Ukasha said that he differs with the MB but not with their methodology; for Islam is "our religion and we are brought up on its methodology" but he differs in the political opinions. This kind of difference is a good phenomenon. He said "I utterly refuse their referral to military tribunals; "they are Egyptian honest patriots, and I do not know when the day Egypt may enjoy freedom and cancellation of military tribunals and other notorious codes? I don"t think that such a regime will result in a man saying "No, there is a public opinion refusing these foolish actions"".
Writer, Ahmad Taha Al-Naqr, said "I am against the military tribunals in principle, because the military judges are being appointed and promoted by their leaders, and it is the right of the people- including the Muslim Brotherhood- to be sentenced before their natural civil judge.

I think that this is a political orientation of the regime not a real case. The regime wants to behead the MB for being the biggest force in the street enjoying grass- roots and that the ruling party does not have any kind of grass- roots; it is just a tail for the government and authorities, if we cut this tail, for sure the party will die forever. I want to tell the regime that the respected country is that it respects its constitution; the exceptional notorious codes are against the constitution and consideration values.


Jamal Fahmi, journalist and a member of the Egyptian Syndicate of Journalists, confirms that referring them to the military court is a phenomenon of chaos, barbarism, and dictatorship practiced by the regime. Because the military courts do not use any of the justice standards; it is related to what is mistaken by the military figures only.

The continuity of this crime is unacceptable and the silent educated ones are partners of the regime in this crime. All powers should gather together to be against this barbarism, because thoughts are not to be faced by suppression. The silence of some political currents is considered an involvement in the crime itself. This refers that every current asks for its freedom only. Today the MB are the victims, tomorrow will be other political current. Unfortunately the regime finds some mentalities that do understand the suppressive tools; this is not in favor of the country it rules. I doubt that such mentalities can respond to the call of mind".
