The Cordoba Foundation has announced a seminar being held today titled “Government Review of the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain: Unravelling the Motives.” According to the announcement:
David Cameron recently ordered a ‘review’ into the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain, which is to be conducted by the British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. The review comes at a time when the Muslim Brotherhood, victors in Egypt’s only free election to date, is being subject to the most ferocious repression by the military regime.
This timely seminar asks whether this review represents a threat to British liberties and favours the perpetrators of human rights abuses everywhere. Moreover, is the review the result of pressure placed on the British government by undemocratic regimes abroad? Could our Prime Minister be setting a dangerous precedent by conducting this review?
Speaking at the seminar will be
- Lord Ken Macdonald (former UK director of public prosecutions, member of a legal team appointed by the Egyptian Brotherhood)
- Anas Altikriti (UK Muslim Brotherhood leader, head of Cordoba)
- Maha Azzam (Egyptians For Democracy, Chatham House)
- Peter Oborne (journalist for the Daily Telegraph)
- Mona Al-Qazzaz (Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson in the UK)
