Egypt's Coalition for Child Rights (ECCR) denounced on Tuesday the act of some members of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) of the Muslim Brotherhood group who arrested four children on Monday in front of the party's headquarter in Mukattam.
The FJP members turned the children in to the police station, accusing them of attempting to burn the party headquarters.
Lawyer of the Coalition said that arresting the children came in effect of the prosecution's decision that authorizes citizens to arrest others.
He said that up to this moment the children, aged between 15 - 18 years, are still detained.
Egypt’s general prosecution issued a decision on Sunday that grants individual citizens the right to turn in whoever is caught in the criminal act of vandalism to the authorities.
