Al-Ghannouchi calls Egyptian court ruling against Hamas ‘oppressive’

Wednesday, 05 March 2014

Head of the Tunisian Islamic party Ennahda Sheikh Rashid Al-Ghannouchi strongly criticized on Tuesday an Egyptian court’s decision to designate the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement Hamas a “terrorist organization”.

Commenting on the court ruling, Al-Ghannouchi told Quds Press news agency that: “It is an oppressive decision issued by an oppressive regime.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the Egyptian Court for Urgent Matters in Cairo designated Hamas a “terrorist organization” based on claims that it is linked to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which the interim Egyptian government designated a “terrorist organization” in December of last year, and that the Palestinian movement took part in recent security disturbances in Egypt.

The court banned the movement and imposed an embargo on all its properties in Egypt.
