KUWAIT CITY, Dec 15: One of the members of the Muslim Brotherhood, identified only as Islam, has been deported to Cairo, despite the interference of a number of current and former deputies belonging to the “Brotherhood” to keep him behind bars in Kuwait or be deported to Turkey or any country other than Egypt, but the response from the security sources was clear that Kuwait is committed to the security agreement concluded with Egypt and that the issue of security and stability is a “red line”, with no mediation and no settlements, reports Al-Rai daily.
According to the security sources, Islam was seized after he arrived at the Kuwait International Airport from Turkey. The daily added, his movements had been monitored by the security authorities and was arrested in connection with the cell members who were arrested in Kuwait in mid-July and then deported to Kuwait based on the extradition treaty signed between Kuwait and Egypt.
According to the security sources the man is a dentist by profession and was working in Kuwait and was earlier working in a hospital in Sohag in Egypt. The security sources said following the arrest of cell members, the dentist left for Turkey with others.
After he was allegedly given the green light to return to Kuwait by his associates, he was told if he felt insecure, he could then leave Kuwait, but the vigilant security officers who had put him under surveillance took him in custody as soon as he stepped on the Kuwaiti soil.
During interrogation, the suspected identified only as Islam is said to have admitted to his relationship with the members of the “Brotherhood” cell seized by Kuwait, and that he participated in securing financial support for the elements of the organization in Egypt, whether through remittances or by providing travelers with money. Sources connected to the investigations suggested that the man is related to one of the persons accused of violence, including the burning of churches in Egypt
