Egypt deports man lobbying against mass death sentences

Published: 04.04.14, 14:52 / Israel News

CAIRO - Egyptian authorities deported a rights campaigner hours after he flew in to deliver a petition against death sentences imposed on 529 supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi, the man and security officials said on Friday.

 

Wissam Tarif, a Lebanese citizen from international group Avaaz, was hoping to hand over the appeal at a meeting with the grand mufti,
Egypt's top religious authority who reviews all death sentences.

  

"I landed at Cairo airport and I wasn't allowed in. My name popped up on the computer and they took me to the deportation room where I was interrogated by political security about the meeting, about the petition, about the mufti," he added. Tarif said he was barred from leaving the airport to attend the meeting and authorities briefly seized his computer. (Reuters)
