UK, Canada ‘shun’ Egypt’s Brotherhood probe call

The United Kingdom and Canada have thus far not responded to several requests by the Egyptian government to conduct a probe on the Muslim Brotherhood group on their respective territories, a senior official at the Egyptian Justice Ministry said on Sunday.

“Canada and Britain, who initially expressed interest to join Egyptian authorities in investigating the Brotherhood’s involvement in terrorism cases inside and outside Egypt have not responded to any of our requests for cooperation,” the official, speaking anonymously, told Anadolu Agency.
