Field Marshal Tantawi, the head of the ruling military council, has called on the “great Egyptian people to stand up against all forms of sabotage and betrayal”


Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, the de factor ruler of Egypt, has called on the “great Egyptian people to stand up against all forms of sabotage and betrayal”.

“I hope the arson of the Scientific Institute would be the last act of sabotage in Egypt, and let’s hope for prosperity in the New Year,” he said.

Tantawi’s words came as he inaugurated a medical centre specialised in vertebral column problems, with a host of members of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).

The Scientific Institute was burned during clashes between the military police and protesters earlier this month, following a crackdown on a sit-in staged at the Cabinet office against military rule and the appointment of interim Prime Minister Kamal El-Ganzouri.
