Activist and journalist Hassan Al-Banna returns to his home after his detention

Informed sources told Adala that activist and journalist Hassan Al-Banna Mubarak arrived to his home; after being detained at Cairo airport for 24 hours.
According to reports, the Egyptian authorities detained him upon his return from Jordan; as the Jordanian authorities refused to receive him on the 16th of this month.

Abdel Rahman, Hassan’s brother, posted on Facebook that his brother was detained upon his arrival to Cairo airport, saying; “Hassan officially left Cairo airport on Friday April 16th,; traveling to Jordan as a country that permits entry to Egyptians without a prior visa. However, the Jordanian security authorities did not accept his entry, and refused any other option that would be in favor of his travel to another country, and deported him to Cairo yesterday, Sunday April 18th.”

Furthermore, the Egyptian authorities had released al-Banna in May 2020 with a guarantee of his place of residence; as he had been detained since 2018 on charges of joining a group established in violation of the provisions of the law and its financing, as well as publishing false news in connection with Case No. 441 of 2018 Supreme State Security.
