Pro-democracy alliance claims Egypt's coup is collapsing

Egypt’s National Alliance to support legitimacy has suggested that the masterminds of the Egyptian coup that ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, are increasingly facing fears of legal retribution, threatening the coup regime.

The Alliance pointed out that the Egyptian police have laid all the blame on the Army, holding it primarily responsible for the criminal attacks in Al-Amiriya and Mostorod districts for leaving them without cover. This is particularly so after the Egyptian Police found themselves solely responsible for the terrible massacres of Rabaa al-Adawiya and al-Nahda squares. The Alliance hinted that the coup’s leader, Defence Minister Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi, was tampering with the army by his recent reshuffles to avoid any possible legal retribution or punishments for the crimes he committed.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Alliance called for all Egyptian revolutionaries to unite until the truth prevails, saying: “On 19 March 2011, the first call was made to uphold the Egyptian will after decades of fraud and forgery. But the coup soon kidnapped the revolution and turned its course to serve its interests. On 19 March 2014, your concerted effort testifies to your will to reunite and win your revolution back from the coup and counter-revolution. Let’s all start by intensifying our efforts from tomorrow, Wednesday, 19 March until 1 April in all parts of the country, to raise the Egyptian flag and the Rabaa Al-Adawiya sign.”

The statement concluded: “Our revolution will prevail; so act accordingly and push your revolution forward in a peaceful manner under the youth and students’ leadership”.
