From al-Ahram daily in Egypt:
Bahraini rights activist Al-Khawaja banned from entering Egypt
Airport authorities ban Bahrain‘s Mariam Al-Khawaja from entering
Egypt; Prominent rights activist to be deported to Copenhagen on Sunday evening
Sunday 26 Aug 2012
Security sources at the airport told Egyptian state news agency MENA that Al-Khawaja’s name had been put on the airport’s entrance-ban list by Egyptian security authorities.
The activist is expected to be deported to Copenhagen, Denmark on Sunday evening.
Al-Khawaja is a prominent Bahraini human rights activist and head of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR)’s foreign relations office. The BCHR was originally founded by her father, Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, who is currently serving a life sentence in Bahrain for so-called crimes against the state.
Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja’s case drew international attention in February of this year when he launched a hunger strike to protest his ongoing detention.
During a previous visit to Egypt in April, Mariam had come close to being deported, but Cairo airport security had ended up allowing her entry into the country at the last minute.
