FJP members to be tried over Shafiq Minya office vandalism
The district prosecutor in the governorate of Minya, Upper Egypt referred six members of the Freedom and Justice Party to trial on charges of vandalizing Ahmed Shafiq’s local campaign office.
The court would begin hearing the case on 2 September.
The incident took place on 18 June when supporters of President Mohamed Morsy took to the street in Al-Edwa City to celebrate preliminary reports in the 16-17 June runoff election that showed Morsy in the lead.
The FJP members allegedly stormed Shafiq’s campaign office, assaulted two officials and vandalized one car.
A number of Shafiq campaign offices were broken into and set on fire in Cairo and other governorates during protests that erupted days before the presidential runoff.
Protesters had demanded that the Political Isolation Law be put into effect against Shafiq, Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister, in order to disqualify him from the race.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
