Egypt Promises to Treat Gitmo-Returnee Well

A few days ago I asked how the Gitmo prisoner that will be released to Egypt will be treated on his return. It has now been reported that the Egyptian government is promising to treat him humanely. But rights activists fear he will be tortured... The question is still open, in other words.

What if Egypt would decide to be the ‘better person’ and use the case of this 49 year-old teacher to show that criticizing the practices of the USA in Guantanamo Bay was not just empty words? The man has rights – can someone please respect them?

Another lecturer is asking “Why do no Egypt let me leave, why do they let us hate our beloved Egypt.” Authorities are denying him the right to continue his research abroad.
