Dr. Essam El-Erian- the top leader in the Muslim Brotherhood group and an ex-Parliamentarian- said that the Muslim Brotherhood’s insistence on reform made the regime keep me behind bars for about seven months.


He added - in a statement to Ikhwanweb- that he was among more than 1000 MB prisoners of conscience who call for freedom and reform.


Dr. El-Erian said that the period he spent behind bars did not affect his insistence on the issues of general reform and his fighting corruption inside all state institutions, confirming that he is optimistic bout the future of the country, despite the quelling of freedoms; he added that the Muslim Brothers will remain dedicated to the interests this country and to defending Islam and that the detentions will not prevent them from serving their country and serving its great people.


Al Erian concluded his statements by saying that nothing good is expected from the ruling regime under the policy of repressions against all people in this homeland; he added that this regime targets all those who seek superiority and development of this country while it has been giving a deaf ear to all popular pressures for reform throughout these years.


The Higher State Security Prosecution- in Heliopolis- released on Saturday 9/12/2006 Dr Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Executive Bureau member, and Dr Essam El-Erian, and  put them under house arrest.


The Consultation Room of Cairo’s Criminal Court cancelled, on Sunday 10/12/2006, the decision of the Higher State Security Prosecution of imposing a house arrest on Dr. Mohamed Morsi and Dr. Essam El-Erian, a top leader in the group, and it upheld the decision of releasing them, and their reached their homes on Sunday morning.


Essam El-Erian and Mohammed Morsi were jailed for organizing
pro-reform protests last May. The two- leading members of Egypt’s largest Islamic political organization- are among more than 500 members who were detained by the authorities in May when several demonstrations were held in support of two reformist judges who were facing a disciplinary action.
