6 April Youth Movement member Amr Ali has told Ahram Online that the movement’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is the best proof that it did not receive foreign funds or serve foreign agendas. He said the prize is only offered to those who do something unique and genuine.

Ali added that the Egyptian revolution was made through the new ideas of a national youth that was not backed by any foreign body. He added that the Nobel Peace Prize is not influenced by any external agendas, and is offered to those who accomplish change through peaceful means, just as Egypt’s revolution did.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has directed formal accusations against the 6 April Movement, claiming that it served foreign agendas and received foreign funds.
