Mohamed Soltan is deported to U.S at last

Egyptian-American Mohamed Soltan has been released and deported to the U.S according to his family early Saturday. Soltan was sentenced to life in jail in the Rabaa control room last month.
Here is the statement from Hanaa Soltan.

By the grace of God, we are incredibly happy to confirm that Mohamed is on his way home after nearly two years in...

It is unclear whether Soltan has given up his Egyptian nationality or not. According to the Egyptian law "which was amended by a presidential decree in 2014" foreign prisoners are deported to their country. Updated : It is confirmed , he had to give it up despite he did not want to but he accepted to give up his Egyptian nationality because of his family's pressure after the life sentence verdict.

Of course giving up his nationality to get his freedom is another crime committed and injustice frankly speaking. Very positive message indeed !!!

Hopefully insh Allah he will restore it back.

Arrested in August 2013 at his home while caring for his sick mother instead of his father prominent MB preacher Salah Soltan, Mohamed Soltan was in detention for almost 643 days.

He started full and partial hunger strike from time to time to demand for his release.

He had been on a hunger strike whether partial strike or full on for almost 489.

Historically I believe Soltan has the longest record when it comes to hunger strike in Egypt.
