Freedom and Justice Party Sues Al-Dostour Newspaper for Slanderous Fabrications
Freedom and Justice Party Sues Al-Dostour Newspaper for Slanderous Fabrications
Dr. Erian calls upon Egyptian media to commit to professional standards of truth and accuracy in stories they report about the Freedom and Justice Party and its eminent leaders.

Dr. Essam El-Erian, Vice-Chairman of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), has commissioned the FJP’s legal department to file a libel and defamation complaint against the owner and board chairman and editor-in-chief of Al-Dostour newspaper because of fabricated falsehoods published by the paper in its Thursday, June 21 issue, against the FJP.


In that issue, the paper accused the FJP of holding a secret meeting and of putting a plot to cause confusion and chaos if the Supreme Presidential Elections Committee (SPEC) does not announce victory for the party's candidate, Dr. Mohamed Morsi.

Erian asserted that the false report published by the newspaper is a pure, deliberate lie that evidently relied on misinformation that never existed except in the minds of its writers who wish to vilify and tarnish the image of the FJP and its leaders.

"Al-Dostour is adopting the same old approach favored by the corrupt former regime, which it applied through the state security apparatus against the Muslim Brotherhood and its honorable leaders in this country, making all sorts of vilifying claims against them, all of which have been proven fabricated fables and lies."

The FJP’s Vice-Chairman called on the media to commit to professional objectivity and to investigate the accuracy of stories before they publish anything about the FJP and its leaders, and to hold high the interests of Egypt, rather than publish tendentious information intended only to distort the homeland’s honorable people.
