British Arab Network Chairman interviewed about Egypt’s response to terrorist attacks in Sinai on GHAD EL ARABY02 Jul 2015, by In the Media -
Dr. Wafik Moustafa, Chairman of the British Arab Network has condemned the terrorist attacks in Sinai, Egypt and called on the Egyptian Government not to use new terrorism laws as a pretext to crush political opposition in an interview on Ghad El Araby TV Channel.
The Egyptian Government has called for a pan Arab army to fight terrorism and new counter-terrorism laws in Egypt.
Dr. Moustafa said:
“Security is a top priority and I condemn the killing of police officers, military personnel and civilians in Sinai. Any new counter terrorism laws should be subject to public debate and the scrutiny of an elected Parliament, whose existence has been thwarted by the government. The new laws must not use terrorism as a pretext for crushing political opposition and stifling freedom of speech.Rightly there are concerns about human rights abuses in Egypt.”
