CAIRO: The Muslim Brotherhood’s National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL) issued a statement on its Facebook page Thursday night denouncing a report by the state-run National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) on the Rabaa sit-in dispersal last August 14.
On Monday, the NCHR issued its final report on the dispersal by security forces, which said that 632 died, 1,492 were injured, and at least 800 were arrested on August 14, 2013.
On the same day, the NASL issued a statement on its official Facebook page condemning the report of the fact-finding committee, calling it the “obliteration of facts committee.” It called for a press conference on Tuesday, but authorities did not allow the conference to be held.
The NASL condemned government authorities for preventing their holding of the press conference, and preventing journalists and reporters from covering the conference, in their statement.
Their statement Thursday also praised a press conference held by Brotherhood supporters in Turkey in reaction to the prevention of the Cairo press conference.
The NASL said an international legal team is currently working to investigate the Rabaa and Al Nahda dispersals, NASL member Hoda Abdel-Moneim said in a press release, Youm7 reported.
The NASL has a number of branches in many countries that all operate under one strategy, as demonstrated by the press conference in Turkey on Tuesday, she added.
