El-Haddad Rejects Obama Meeting Allegations
El-Haddad Rejects Obama Meeting Allegations
President Morsi foreign relations advisor El-Haddad refutes claims regarding his meeting with President Obama, made by pro-coup newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm.
Thursday, April 2,2015 05:15

Dr. Essam El-Haddad, President Morsi foreign relations advisor, totally rejects the claims published on March 11, 2015 in Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper interview with Mohamed Fahmi, Al-Jazeera English freed journalist.

The interview claimed that El-Haddad asked President Obama for advice on the control of armed forces and Obama allegedly promised that he will send him a file from the Pentagon when El-Haddad arrives back in Egypt.

Dr. Essam El-Haddad affirmed to his family – on March 15, 2015 – that his meeting with President Obama on December 4, 2012 did not cover such topics. He also explained that he barely spoke with Mohamed Fahmi, since each of them was held in solitary confinement at different locations in Al-Aqrab maximum security prison.

El-Haddad lawyers demanded Al-Masry Al-Youm publish a correction. If the newspaper refrained, his family will pursue the matter, taking legal action as appropriate.

While these claims were circulating last week, El-Haddad and detainees in Al-Aqrab Prison had all their belongings removed by the administration, including clothes, medications and food. They were also denied any time outside their solitary cells, eg for exercise.

This week, prison officials prevented families from visiting the detainees or delivering food and medication.  El-Haddad’s family tried to explain that his mediations are critical for preventing heart failure, stroke and attacks. The officials replied satirically: “He will be transferred to hospital,” referring to a facility where one of the detainees died last year.

El-Haddad's family holds prison officials responsible for any deterioration in his health.
