Ikhwan Al-Muslimun Urges SCAF to Give Up Power over Freedom of US Suspects

TEHRAN (FNA)- A spokesman for the Egyptian Al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun (Muslim Brotherhood) party blamed the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces for having freed the US suspects who were accused of corruption and interference in Cairo's internal affairs through financial support for the Arab country's civil entities, and called on SCAF to resign over the scandal.

Speaking to FNA on Sunday, Mahmoud Qazalan responded to a question about those responsible for the release and escape of the US suspects, and said, "I believe the supreme military council is the only one responsible for this act."

He further noted the political parties' expectation from the SCAF over the scandal, and said, "The council is expected to give up power as soon as possible."

On Tuesday, Basineh Kamel, a senior politician and a likely candidate in the coming presidential election in Egypt, said that the SCAF has released the US suspects to prove its loyalty to Washington.

Speaking to FNA, Kamel said SCAF plans to reinvigorate its presence on Egypt's political and decision-making scenes and it, thus, needs to fortify its position through foreign support.

To the same end, the SCAF is seeking to consolidate its ties with the White House to have the US company. "SCAF sought to prove its loyalty to the Americans, and thus it freed all the American detainees in violation of all rules."

She described foreign organizations' financial backup for national entities in Egypt as the most bothering insult to the Egyptian Judiciary system, and said the SCAF has sold the entire nation by embarking on such a move.

Many Egyptian revolutionary figures have lashed out at the SCAF for its weak performance in governing the country, and underlined the necessity for the transfer of power to a civil government.
