There have been allegations on news sites alleging that Malik had links with one of Egypt’s most powerful groups that western countries especially the US view with great suspicion.
“I know of those claims and they are circulating on the internet,” Malik told the Turkish Anadolu Agency in a phone interview on Friday, describing the claims as “utter nonsense.”
An Egyptian lawyer has lodged a complaint with Egypt’s prosecutor-general to put Malik Obama on Egypt’s terror watch list over the mentioned accusations.
In response to a question whether he had been to Egypt or intended to visit the country, he said, “I have never been to Egypt, and anyway, who wants to get into the chaotic situation that now reigns in that country?”
“I am a peace worker with a registered foundation doing both peace and charity work,” he added.
“As the head of the large Obama family, I am doing my bit in promoting peace globally and development of humanity through the Barack H. Obama Foundation, which I have founded, as my brother does his bit for the American people and the world,” Malik Obama said.
Malik Obama further said he recently traveled to Turkey, Macedonia and the Balkans, where he was awarded “The Balkan Charter of Peace” by the Balkan Club of Peace in recognition of his role in the promotion of global peace.
