Muslim Brotherhood urges Britain not to yield to foreign 'pressure' over review
by Yara Bayoumy
The Muslim Brotherhood has urged Britain not to bow to foreign pressure in conducting a review of the group over concerns about possible links to violence, following its designation by Egypt and Saudi Arabia as a terrorist organisation.
In a statement, the movement said that it would "openly engage" with the review ordered by Prime Minister David Cameron but it would challenge in the British courts "any improper attempt to restrict its activity".
The Brotherhood, a movement whose affiliated groups have deep roots in many Arab and Islamic states, said it was concerned that Britain's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, John Jenkins, would be leading the review, the statement issued late on Wednesday said.
