Libyan Muslim Brothers boycott Libyan opposition conference in London
Libya, Politics, 6/25/2005
The Muslim Brothers group in Libya decided to boycott the conference of the Libyan opposition groups due to be held in London today because of its objection to lay prior conditions for the schedule of the conference.
The leading figure in the group Naser al-Mane said that the Muslim Brothers had hoped since their participation in the preliminary meetings for the conference more than one year ago that freedom will be given to all to take part and propose appropriate solutions for the Libyan situations, but the persistence of certain opposition groups to define these limits and frame the conference and drawing conditions for removing Mu'ammar al-Qathafi from authority and forming an interim government was a reason to push the movement to withdraw and not to take part in the conference.
Al-Mane refused to link the decision of not taking part in the conference to what had been rumored on the intention of the Libyan authorities to release detainees of the Muslim Brothers organization in the Libyan jails. He said that the withdrawal from the conference was decided some 10 months ago while news on nearby release of the detainees is only one month old.
Al-Mane stressed that the ball is now in the court of the Libyan authorities to make genuine reform and create an optimum atmosphere for a national dialogue in order to create a country of the law of law and the constitutions which protects freedom and human rights.
