A letter written from the Hon. Rev Fred Nile to Australia’s PM, regarding the President’s decree in Egypt.
Hon J Gillard MP
Prime Minister of Australia
CANBERRA ACT 2600
14th December 2012
Dear Miss Gillard
I write regarding the current, alarming situation in Egypt following the President’s decree giving himself sweeping powers which cannot be challenged in any Egyptian Court.
As you will be aware many secular Egyptians are very anxious about the direction their country seems to be heading politically, especially the minority Coptic community who have been the victims of increasing violence over the past couple of years.
I request you to stress to the Egyptian government your concerns about recent political events in Egypt, urging its leaders to set up a fully democratic political system to protect the interests and rights of minorities, especially the Coptic Christian minority.
Rev Hon Fred Nile MLC
