The High Administrative Court announced that the verdict in the case regarding the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party is to be issued on 9 August.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) released a statement in anticipation of the verdict assuring that its members will continue their work.

“[The party’s] men, women and youths revolting in the squares is proof that political work does not exist by the existence of headquarters and air conditioned halls, but through dedicated work, struggle and continuous efforts to serve the public”, the statement read.

The statement said the party would continue its work with the public “based on the confidence the Egyptian people granted [to the party] in more than one election since the January 25 revolution."
The FJP obtained 49 percent of parliament seats in the 2011- 2012 elections.

Since the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi last July, his group and loyalists have faced a state crackdown. Thousands are currently in prison and hundreds have been killed in clashes with security.

The Muslim Brotherhood was dissolved last October and declared a terrorist group last December.
