The Muslim Brotherhood denied on Sunday that its Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie has made a deal to withdraw demonstrators in exchange for Mohamed Morsi's release and reinstatement as president

The Brotherhood's official spokesperson Yasser Mehrez said that the National Alliance to Support Legitimacy will not engage in any negotiations until Morsi is reinstated.

The Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) released a statement saying headquarters across Egypt have been empty since 27 June for fear of attacks. The party complained that its main headquarters in downtown Cairo was closed down by the police.

The FJP statement said it was not responsible for any violence that has taken place around its headquarters since they were cleared out in late June.

The army removed the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi from the presidency on 3 July after millions took to the streets demanding early presidential elections.

Hundreds of thousands of pro-Morsi demonstrators are demanding his reinstatement. Sit-ins are ongoing at the Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque in Nasr City and at the Presidential Guard barracks where they believe Morsi is being held.
