Egyptians protest at Spanish Embassy

Wed 22th Jun 2011

Hussein Salem, an allegedly corrupt Egyptian Businessman and close confidante of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, has been on the run since the 4rd of February, was arrested at his Majorca Villa last Wednesday.

Egyptian sources are demanding that Salem, who holds Spanish Citizenship, is handed over to the Egyptian Authorities to face trial and are alledging that he obtained his new nationality illegally.

There is currently no law in place that obliges any one country to extradite its citizens for trial in another, which means that there is a chance that he may remain in Spain.

The Spanish judiciary is an independent authority, acting free from political pressure, which is why the Egyptian authorities are handling the issue with utmost caution, said the source, who also mentioned that Salem was being kept in a Hospital on the Island and has still to pay his bail.

Meanwhile, scores of demonstrators gathered before the Spanish Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday, demanding his extradition to Egypt. "He is a criminal," said Riham Abdel Salam, one of the protesters. "But an embassy official told us Egypt did not submit sufficient evidence to Madrid for him to be brought to trial."
