The Muslim Brotherhood, represented by Dr. Mohamed Habeeb, First Deputy of the MB Chairman, has denounced the arrests of Prof. Rashad El-Bayoumi, professor of Geology at Cairo University along with several students acitivists affaliated with the Muslim Brotherood. In a statement to IkhwanWeb, he condemned that step, indicating that this event points out to an unprecedented retreat in the question of freedoms in Egypt. After the reform achievements that the national movement has realized over the past year, there is now a big regression in the political open-up. He pointed out to recent major setbacks in the path for reform including the referral of four top judiciary counsellors to the Higher State Security Prosecution, the return to the tendency to assault demonstrators, and the postponement of municipall elections for two years. All these actions confirm that the Egyptian regime does not want any reform and has neither intention nor true desire to bring about a true political change.

The upredicted move which reflects the deteriorated level of freedom in Egypt, came when security forces stormed one house at exactly 11:00 AM Friday morning March 3rd and detained seven leading Muslim Brotherhood student figures on top of them was Prof. Rashad el-Bayyoumi, member of the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau, together with a group of outstanding national student leaders including:1-Abdel-Meguid Mashali, Cairo. 2-Ahmad Abdel-Gawwad, Asiut, grandson of former Muslim Brotherhood General Guide, Mustafa Mashhour. 3-Anas El-Kadi, Alexandria. 4-Mohamed El-Saieedi Tanta. 5-El-Sayed El-Shewehy, Mansoura. 6-Dr. Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab, professor at Zagazig University.
