Court prohibits Independence Party activities

The Cairo Urgent Matters Court on Monday prohibited the activities of the Independence Party, which is considered a political arm of the Brotherhood’s National Alliance to Support Legitimacy.
Chancellor Amr Abdel Razek, former head of the State Security Court, had filed a lawsuit, contending that the party incites acts of violence and finances criminal groups to organize armed demonstrations to call for the return of President Mohamed Morsy. He also said the party’s logo is ‘Islam is the Solution’ which contravenes the Constitution that prohibits religious parties.
