SHAFAQNA – Lawyer Ahmad Ragheb, appointed by prominent human rights activist Nabeel Rajab to represent him in Egypt, said that the administrative judiciary issued a verdict, removing Rajab’s name from the list of people banned from entering the country.
This decision comes about four years after a case was raised requesting the removal of Rajab’s name from the blacklist (November 2012).
Ragheb, who is an active human rights defense lawyer in Egypt, posted a tweet on his personal Twitter account on Thursday (July 28, 2016), saying: “Thank God, we got a verdict from the administrative judiciary in favor of Bahraini human rights defender Nabeel Rajab, thus he is no longer listed on the list of people banned from entering Egypt.”
الحمد لله حصلنا على حكم من القضاء الإداري لصالح المدافع عن حقوق الإنسان البحريني نبيل رجب بموجبه لم يعد مدرجاً بقوائم الممنوعين من دخول مصر
