The Muslim Brotherhood — faced with a investigation into their British-based activities — has chosen to flee its recently established London headquarters’ address for less scrutinized surroundings in Graz, Austria.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced the investigation into the Islamist group just a few days ago, Breitbart reported.

The Brotherhood’s London office was supposed to be its new global headquarters. The group was forced to move from Egypt in recent weeks, due to a government crackdown on violence that has been waged in the streets since the coup of former President Mohammed Morsi.

But Mr. Cameron said earlier this month he wanted to learn just want the Brotherhood was doing in the United Kingdom. And red flags were further raised when the Brotherhood responded to Mr. Cameron’s announcement by threatening to take legal action against the British government, Breitbart reported.

Instead of sticking around to wage a legal battle, however, they’ve run off to Graz, the second largest city in Austria.

On its website, the Muslim Brotherhood wrote: “The choice of Graz as the location for a Muslim Brotherhood headquarters may seem odd to some but as a report on the history of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood has noted, self-described Brotherhood ‘Foreign Minister’ Youssef Nada and the late U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leader Ahmed Elkadi were both living in Graz in the 1960s.”
