The family of Egypt's former President Mohamed Morsi yesterday denounced the arrest of his son Osama at the hands of Egyptian authorities.
Osama's brother, Ahmed said: "The arrest of Osama, who is our family spokesman, is a new crime against the president's family and a continuation of the harassment against the president and his rights."
The family demanded "the free world" reject and condemn Osama's arrest, adding that "settling scores with the family will not deter the president."
Osama was arrested from his home yesterday in the Sharkiya province. No reasons were given for his arrest.
