Another purge of Ikhwanis?
Civil servants with proven ties to the Ikhwan could face automatic dismissal under a proposed bill to be put to the House of Representatives as early as this month, Rep. Abdel Fattah Mohamed told Al Shorouk. Under the amendments to the Civil Service Act, those with suspected Ikhwan ties would be temporarily suspended from their positions while an investigation is conducted and would be permanently dismissed if these links are proven, Amin said. The law could be constitutional, he added, since the Ikhwan is designated as a terrorist group. The proposed amendments come after Transport Minister Kamel El Wazir claimed last week that “extremist elements” in the Railways Authority were responsible for the deterioration of the country’s rail network, said Rep. Amin Massoud.
