ABU DHABI: Egyptian detainees held in the UAE over suspected links with President Mohammed Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood are being treated “well” in the Gulf country, Cairo’s envoy said yesterday.
“The Egyptian detainees are being treated well in accordance with the UAE laws,” Emirati state news agency WAM quoted Egypt’s ambassador to Abu Dhabi Tamer Mansur as saying.
“None of the detainees who are being interrogated has been subjected to any psychological or physical pressure,” he added. Last month, local media reported that UAE authorities had arrested 11 Egyptians residing in the country. AFP
