Egypt's Brotherhood denounces arrest of Morsi's supply minister

World Bulletin / News Desk

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has denounced the arrest of Bassem Ouda, who served as supply minister under ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

Egyptian security authorities arrested Ouda, also a member of the Brotherhood, on Tuesday inside a soap factory in Wadi Al-Natrun, Beheira province.

The Brotherhood slammed the move as "a continuation of a relentless campaign to arrest opponents of the traitorous military coup."

The group, which considers the army's July 3 ouster of Morsi as a coup against an elected president, described Ouda as "the best and most popular supply minister in Egypt's history."

Ouda faces charges of inciting violence in the Giza province following the violent dispersal of sit-ins staged by Morsi supporters on August 14.

Security authorities have unleashed a massive crackdown on the Brotherhood, the group from which Mori hails, since their bloody dispersal of the pro-Morsi sit-ins, in which hundreds of demonstrators were killed.
