Human Rights Watch: ElBaradei’s supporters should be freed and allowed re-entry into Kuwait

Human rights Watch have condemned Kuwait ‘s intervention in Egypt ‘s affairs following the deportation of 20 Egyptian expatriates living in Kuwait . On April 10, the government deported 17 Egyptian citizens back to Cairo after they had convened in discussion and support of Elbaradei on grounds that they had publicly gathered and slandered the Egyptian President Mubarak. The IAEA former chief who had not ruled out running for Presidency had called for the amendments of the constitution in hopes of ensuing free and fair elections gathering much support by Egypt ‘s opposition factions. 

Sarah Whitson HRW director in the Middle East criticized the action by Kuwait ‘s officials maintaining that the Egyptians had done nothing to violate the Kuwaiti law and should be allowed back into Kuwait .

Opposition parties including the Muslim Brotherhood opposed the move calling on the Kuwaiti ambassador in Egypt to intervene stressing that Kuwait had no call to intercede in Egypt ‘s sovereignty.

Kuwait has more than 250,000 Egyptian citizens currently live and working there.
