Motion text

That this House considers the imprisonment without conviction of Mr Adel Abdel Bary since 1999, separating him from his wife and children, whilst he contests his extradition to the United States, is inhumane and unjust, given that he is a respected human rights lawyer, previously imprisoned and tortured for his principled opposition to the barbaric Mubarak regime in Egypt and that no credible evidence has been levelled against him; and calls on the Government to reject the US request for extradition and to release Mr Adel Abdel Bary to allow him to return to his family.
