The Association for Victims of the Muslim Brotherhood Regime Saturday called on the current government to “begin providing compensation to the families of the victims of the 30 of June Revolution.”
During a press conference at the Press Syndicate held by the association, Modern Egypt Party spokesman and attorney Kamal El-Eslamboly stated that “victims of the Muslim Brotherhood include the judiciary, media, military, police and the people.”
“The government has to act before the people decide to take the martyrs’ rights with their own hands, creating more victims,” El-Eslamboly said.
The spokesman went on to claim that former President Mohamed Morsi “wanted to divide the Egyptian nation to serve an international agenda… sell Sinai and was working towards dividing Halayeb and Shalatin.”
Nabil Nae’m, one of the founders for the Jihad movement and an ex-jihadist, called Morsi “a traitor” while also stressing the importance of providing “compensation for victims killed or injured during his presidency.”
In a statement the association provided certain steps to compensate those who died or were injured during political turmoil since the 25 January Revolution while also announcing their support to the roadmap.
Certain demands have been made by the association asking the current government to not “forestall” joining those killed during the Muslim Brotherhood’s government with victims from the 25 January 2011. The association also asked for pensions to be issued exceptionally to the victims of the Muslim Brotherhood rule while assigning jobs to those injured.
The association also denounced the comments by the Tunisian representatives during the UN General Assembly meeting, saying, “Tunisia’s martyrs were forgotten and the government’s destiny will be the same as Morsi’s.”
On the cabinet’s decision to wait on the application of the court verdict banning the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Mohamed Abdullah Nasr called the government a “hesitant” and “not willing to take the necessary steps.”
This is the fifth conference for the association, which was founded in early June by Khaled Batran and advocates for “victims during the Muslim Brotherhood rule.”
