EU ambassador: No proof that Muslim Brotherhood is responsible for violence

The European Union has not prohibited the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood because there is no proof that they are involved in acts of violence, the EU Ambassador to Cairo James Moran said on Thursday.

Moran added that there is no proof that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organisation and there is no correlation between it and the Islamic State (ISIS).

The BBC issued a report last month, which revealed that the British government’s investigation into the group ended after a lack of sufficient evidence linking the group to terrorism. The same conclusion was re-iterated by the Brotherhood’s official lawyer. The British government did not issue any official comments in this regard.

The Gulf States have warned that economic relations with London would be harmed if the former did not prohibit the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities within its territories.
