CAIRO: The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) staged a protest in Alexandria Sunday, condemning the violations committed against the Egyptian citizens by the police, Osama Gado, parliament member affiliated with the group, told Daily News Egypt.
However, the protest, which was held in front of a court in Al-Manshia district in Alexandria, did not elicit any response from the government. “We will continue staging protests and [will stand behind] our cause until our voices are heard and our demands are met, Gado said.
Protestors held banners denouncing human rights violations by police officials and were specifically supporting the case of Hamada Abdel Latif who was allegedly beaten by police officer Mohamed Al-Sayed, while protesting the closure of a school in Alexandria. Abdel Latif is now paralyzed.
Meanwhile, security forces cracked down on several MB members in Alexandria to muffle any reaction to Abdel Latif s assault, the group s website claims.
The website also includes a list of the 15 detained members along with pictures and videos of Abdel Latif.
