The legal team appointed by the Egyptian Freedom and Justice Party will be holding a press conference on Monday January 6th 2014 at 11am the Cavendish Hotel, Mayfair, 81 Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6JF. This comes after the legal team lodged complaints at the International Criminal Court.

Following the coup in July 2013 Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) and members of the Shura Council (the Upper House of the Egyptian Parliament) appointed an international legal team to advise on the unlawful detention of members of the Government and to investigate criminal acts that had been committed by the military regime.

John Dugard SC, Tayab Ali and other members of the team will update members of the press on the legal actions being taken in response to the coup in Egypt.

The legal team is led by Tayab Ali, solicitor and partner of leading human rights law firm ITN Solicitor and comprises some of the world’s most distinguished legal minds. It includes the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Lord Ken Macdonald QC, South African International Lawyer and former UN Human Rights Special Rapporteur, Professor John Dugard SC, and renowned human rights barrister, Michael Mansfield QC.
