FJP Faces Fierce Smear Campaign Prior to Presidential Elections
FJP Faces Fierce Smear Campaign Prior to Presidential Elections
Al-Youm Al-Sabea newspaper headline, May 13, claims a Freedom and Justice Party medical convoy performed female genital mutilation in Minya province; an allegation vehemently denied by party officials.
Monday, May 14,2012 08:06

The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Minya Secretary Dr. Diaa El-Maghazy said, "This report is completely false. The newspaper has republished it, although the FJP and Minya province health officials did refute the claims when first published by other papers and certain websites, three weeks ago".

El-Maghazy affirmed that the medical convoy in question was absolutely innocent, pointing out that it was organized and run under the supervision of Ministry of Health officials, and included the local Health Office Manager, the Vice President of the city's board of trustees and a member of the local health unit.

FJP Legal Committee Chairman Mukhtar Ashri affirmed that there were ongoing deliberate and ferocious attempts to taint  and vilify the party's image prior to presidential elections, pointing out that these lies will be dealt with through forceful legal action, if the paper does not publish a correction article rectifying the erroneous report and commit to professional press code of honor.

"The issue of female circumcision, called Female Genital Mutilation or FGM by some, was never proposed by the FJP in parliament. Dr. Mohamed Morsi denied it totally, when asked about it recently.  So, continuing to spread accusations, lies and rumors about it is completely unacceptable", Ashri said.
