CAIRO: A delegation from the Muslim Brotherhood’s (MB) bloc at the People’s Assembly will be meeting with Sudanese President Omar Al-Beshir next week.

The delegation is on a visit to Sudan “to show their support for Beshir during the conspiracies he is facing especially from the International Criminal Court, that wants to arrest him and other Sudanese leaders, the MB bloc said in a statement to the press.

Sudanese President Omar Al-Beshir is facing possible arrest for alleged genocide in Darfur after International Criminal Court Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo accused him last week of instructing his forces to annihilate three non-Arab tribes in the region, as well as ordering the murder, torture, pillaging and use of rape to commit genocide.

“What is happening in Sudan needs tremendous Arab, Islamic and humanitarian efforts and support to Beshir, MB Secretary General Mahmoud Ezzat, told Daily News Egypt.

“We are doing the best we can with our limited resources, as we don’t have any money or power to support the Sudanese nation, we are sending MPs who are our most influential channel in order to show our support and our stance on the issue, he said.

“The Arab people and governments have to understand that we are all interdependent and whatever affects Sudan affects the national security of Egypt and other Arab countries on the short-run, Ezzat explained.

MP Mohamed Saad El Katatney, head of the MB Bloc at the PA, will head the delegation which includes Ibrahim Gaafary, Gamal Korany and three other MPs.

The delegation is scheduled to head for Sudan on Sunday July 27.
