The current detention of the Arab doctors Union Secretary-General threatens Egypt"s status, its influence and its leading role in the Arab Union, he claimed, referring to the important and significant role played by Abu Fotouh to benefit Egypt in the Arab Doctor’s Federation.
The Arab League chief promised the chairman of the Egyptian Doctors Syndicate to make efforts in intervening with the Egyptian authorities to set Abul-Fotouh who was arrested along with a number of the Brotherhood high ranking leaders in the case of the alleged international network. He abstained in remarking, emphasizing that he had diplomatic immunity because of his position.
El-Erian warned that the Egyptian authorities resorting to the provisional detention of Dr. Abul Fotouh and Jamal Abdel El-Salam, will threaten the Egyptians’ presence amid the Arab Doctors Federation. Furthermore, there are plans for the transfer of the Arab Doctors Union from Egypt.
Sheikh Gomaah Amin, head of the Muslim Brotherhood Committee for Citations and Chronicle, and supervisor of the Center for Foresight has also been included on the list of defendants as the fifth Member of the Executive Bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood in the present hearing of the international network.
Jumaah is the fifth member of the MB Executive Bureau arrested with Dr. Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh, Dr. Osama Nasr, head of the parliamentary bloc of the Muslim Brotherhood Dr. Saad Al-Katatni and Eng. Saad Al-Husseini.
Al-Mesryoon said that the Muslim Brotherhood expects further security attacks against its leaders where it is estimated that the number of the MB in detention are fifty. It forces the Muslim Brotherhood to be on full alert watching out for new security attacks in which more of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders may be arrested.
However, Dr. Essam El-Erian, the head of the political section in the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group said the movement will not be bullied or intimidated by the detentions and crackdowns. All Muslim Brotherhood leaders are ready to pay any price whether it is arrest or even death, pointing out that the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Chairman Imam Hassan al-Banna was killed aloud in the street.
El-Erian described the Brotherhood as they are sincere people and what is happening such as the escalation of crackdowns threatening Egypt"s interests and its stability. The sole beneficiary of the escalation and confrontation between the State and the Muslim Brotherhood is the Zionist enemy and his U.S ally.
