 Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Secretary General Dr. Saad Katatny condemned the force used by riot police to drive the protesters from Tahrir Square early Saturday. According to eyewitnesses and media sources, scuffles spread resulting in numerous injuries as thousands of riot police streamed into Tahrir Square blocking off the entrances and clashing with protesters reminding the people of methods used during the ousted Mubarak’s reign.


Katatny emphasized, “Peaceful expression of opinion is the right of one and all so long as it conforms to the law”. He opposed long-term occupation of the Square describing it as ‘paralyzing the city’. He called on the police to demonstrate restraint in dealing with the protestors since one of the people’s main demands during the revolution was freedom of expression in Egypt and a dignified life”.
