Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya has warned of the dangers facing Egypt during the current period of transition criticising the referral of ousted president Mohamed Morsi to a criminal court, as well as the military trials of tens of Muslim Brotherhood members.
 
In a statement issued earlier on Wednesday, the conservative Islamist group critiqued three recent court rulings in particular, which they believe could threaten public peace.
 
"The first court ruling is in relation to Morsi, the legitimate president of Egypt, who was referred to the criminal court and accused of inciting the killing of protesters outside the Presidential Palace; the second is in relation to the referral of civilians to military trials for charges everybody knows have been fabricated in order to negatively affect the will of the coup's opponents," Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya said in its statement.
 
Last Sunday, ousted president Mohamed Morsi was referred to the criminal court for 'inciting the killing of protesters' during clashes outside the Presidential Palace in December 2012. 
 
On Tuesday, a Muslim Brotherhood member was sentenced by a military court to life in prison and 48 other members were given sentences of up to 15 years for violence against military officers in Suez.
 
"The third court ruling is the decision of the administrative court to close Al-Jazeera Mubshar Misr, Al-Yarmouk and Ahrar 25 TV channels in a way that threatens the freedom of media and prevents Egyptians from receiving information from different sources," continued the statement.
 
A Cairo court ordered on Tuesday that three television channels - Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr, Al-Yarmouk and Ahrar 25 - be taken off air. The channels are being accused by the interim government of being biased towards the Muslim Brotherhood.
 
Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood led National Alliance to Support Legitimacy coalition, which has demanded the reinstatement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

Only the terrorists want Morsi Back?
So let's get this straight: Gamaa Al Islamiya is a terrorist organisation. They've been responsible for numerous attacks against westerns, like myself; and the only people demanding for Morsi's release (WHo happens to be in prison for good reasons!) are Gamaa Islamiya, the Taliban, Pakistan, Al Qaida and Islam4UK. What does this tell you about Morsi? What does it tell you about the brotherhood ? ARe they NOT ashamed of their image?
