Egyptian minister in Toronto claims anyone who criticized Egypt would be ‘sliced up’

An Ontario Progressive Conservative MPP Sheref Sabawy is in hot water for inviting Egyptian Emigration and Expatriate Affairs Minister Nabila Makram to a flag-raising ceremony at Queen’s Park where she made some controversial comments.

Sabawy said “Anyone who speaks against Egypt will be sliced”, then made a slaughter gesture with her hand.

According to the CBC,some Egyptians in Canada are incensed by Makram’s words, pointing to the current Egyptian regime’s human rights abuses against political dissidents, many of whom now live abroad, says Mohamed Kamel, co-founder of the Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy, an opposition group critical of Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

It is worth noting that the new Egyptian regime cracked down on the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist supporters.
