Brotherhood Urges Punishment of Egyptian Judge for Asking for US Meddling

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Egyptian Al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun (Muslim Brotherhood) party called on the country's supreme judiciary council to investigate a judge who had called for the US meddling in the country's internal affairs.

Speaking to FNA in Cairo on Saturday, Muslim Brotherhood Spokesman Ahmed Aref condemned the recent remarks by President of the Judges Syndicate in Cairo Ahmed al-Zand in which he had called for the US meddling in the US internal affairs.

"We are waiting to see the action by Egypt's supreme judiciary council on lifting the immunity of judge Zand in order for us to investigate him for his remarks," Aref added.

He added that Zand's demand for the US interference in Egypt's internal affairs "harms the country's security".

Earlier this month, a senior member of Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood party warned of attempts underway by certain elements in Egypt to overthrow the Islamic government and reverse the course of the revolution in the country.

"Certain people are attempting to reverse the revolution to intensify unrests and weaken Egypt's economy in a bid to overthrow the ruling system," Jamal Heshmat told FNA earlier this month.

Yet, he expressed the confidence that Egypt will pass through the present difficult juncture, and called on all Egyptians to try to this end and prefer the country's interests to their own and their parties' interests.
