In pics: MB tries to hinder Egyptian election in London

Sat, Mar. 17, 2018
CAIRO – 17 March 2018: In an attempt to hinder the Egyptian election process abroad, a number of Muslim Brotherhood supporters led by Maha Azzam mobilized in front of the Egyptian embassy in London chanting anti-state slogans.

The terrorist group pushed its supporters to chant slogans that are hostile to the Egyptian state and its institutions, trying to impede Egyptians’ constitutional right to vote in London.

Maha Azzam, Cambridge University academic and leader of the Muslim Brotherhood’s "Egyptian Revolutionary Council", has lately been placed on the country's terrorist list for alleged ties to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group. Azzam, who was a supervisor of Giulio Regeni, was suspected of being involved in the murder of the Italian student.

The 28-year-old Italian postgraduate student disappeared in Cairo, only for his dead body to be found on February 3 alongside the Cairo-Alexandria highway, bearing signs of extreme torture and beating, according to Reuters. This murder has led to strained relations between Italy and Egypt.

The terrorist list also included Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh, who, according to an Interior Ministry statement, conducted a series of secret meetings abroad, including the latest meeting in London on February 8, when he communicated with Lotfi al-Sayed Ali Mohamed, member of the international MB organization, and two MB members who fled to Turkey, namely Mohamed Gamal Heshmat and Hossam ad-Din Atef al-Shazly.

“The aim behind the meeting was to set the mechanisms of carrying out chaotic MB schemes and exploiting the accompanying political atmosphere,” the statement read.

Pleading transparency, Aboul Fotouh is not an easy character to detect. His dealings and ties seem illusionary, but Aboul Fotouh was indeed in London, because he broadcasted an interview from there. He returned from London on February 14 and was detained the day after.

London is one of the European cites which have seen remarkable turnout at the Egyptian embassies, where voters lined up to cast their votes in the presidential election.

A number of voters were pictured outside the Egyptian embassy in London waving Egyptian flags as they cast their ballots. A woman voter standing outside the Egyptian embassy in London after voting in the election was wearing a dress featuring the Egyptian flag in its three colors (black, white and red).

Britain is anticipated to reach a firm decision in regards to designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group in the first half of 2018, a high-ranking source revealed exclusively to Egypt Today on Sunday.
