Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has condemned an Egyptian court ruling that ousted President Mohamed Morsi be detained for alleged collaboration with the movement.

“Hamas condemns this move since it is based on the premise that the Hamas movement is hostile,” said the movement’s spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri on Friday.

“This is a dangerous development, which confirms that the current powers in Egypt are giving up on national causes and even using these issues to deal with other parties — first among them the Palestinian cause,” he added.

The official MENA news agency reported earlier in the day that Morsi would be questioned on whether he collaborated with Hamas in jail breaks and attacks on police stations in early 2011.

The allegations go back to the final days of the rule of Egypt’s former dictator Hosni Mubarak in early 2011.

Late January 2011, Morsi and some members of the Muslim Brotherhood escaped from prison.

The Hamas spokesman further urged the Arab league to assume its responsibilities in the wake of such “dangerous developments.”

It also called on the Arab people to “express their position in the face of this dangerous incitement against the Palestinian resistance and people.”

Gehad El-Haddad, a spokesman for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, also slammed the court’s ruling and said the detention order signals the return of the Mubarak regime.

The North African country plunged into chaos after the head of the country’s armed forces, General Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, ousted Morsi on July 3, suspended the constitution and dissolved the parliament.

The court order comes as Egypt braces for yet another Friday of massive rival demonstrations by supporters and opponents of Morsi.

Mohamed Morsi is being held at an undisclosed location.
