Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maksoud, the Muslim Brotherhood's lawyer and MB military detainees' chief attorney, ascertained that the military tribunal detainees are paying a high price with their continued detention. However he expressed confidence that the detainees’ struggle and their valiant efforts will not go in vain where history will record all that they represent; a genuine manifestation of the Egyptian’s conscience demanding freedom.

In his statement to Ikhwanweb, he asserted that the Military Court of Cessation rejected the appeals made by Engineer Khairat Al-Shater, the second deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood and 17 high-ranking leaders against the Military Court’s ruling in April 2008. “It can not, in any way, be regarded as a fair trial for several reasons: First, these citizens were deprived a fair inquiry before a conventional judge and the proceedings of the recent and last court did not comply with the guarantees of a fair trial provided by the Egyptian Constitution and guaranteed by international human rights".

Abdel-Maksoud noted that the ruling by the Court emphasizes the politicization of the issue and the ruling regime’s desire to weaken the largest opposition power represented in the Muslim Brotherhood. He stressed that the ruling regime, resorts to such methods seeking to pass undesirable provisions.

He stressed that resorting to such measures is undoubtedly following the opposite direction contradictory to the explicit commitment of political reform in which the ruling National Democratic Party is allegedly committed to. It is evident the regime is keen to remove the opposition group and the leaders of any political trend in Egypt.

Abdel-Maksoud also indicated that the unjust trials and sentences emphasize the ruling regime’s insistence on the exercise of tyranny, violence, aggression, confiscation of rights, personal freedom, money and property of innocent people based on flimsy judicial decisions. This demonstrates that the regime has committed the most heinous crimes imaginable where it relies on the policy of eliminating its political opponents while pursuing the principle of autocracy.

Abdel-Maksoud described Egypt’s regime as following the authoritarian way of thinking perceiving that authority is a war prize, and that the political opposition are rebels against the regime triggering it to attempt to tarnish the oppositions' image by targeting its leaders.
