CAIRO (AP) — A number one rights group says Kuwait has deported eight arrested Egyptian members of the Muslim Brotherhood group, convicted at house on terrorism fees.
Human Rights Watch says Monday the eight have been “unlawfully returned”, “regardless of the intense danger of torture and persecution they face in Egypt.”
Kuwait final week stated it detained members of the Brotherhood, with some sentenced in Egypt to 15 years behind bars. The nation’s state-run KUNA information company stated Sunday authorities deported “the wished Egyptians.”
Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch stated “it is horrendous that Kuwait is performing on the behest of abusive Egyptian safety companies and returning dissidents to face torture and persecution.”
Kuwait, not like Egypt and Gulf states resembling Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, hasn’t branded the Brotherhood a terrorist group.
