Mother: Egyptian Activist to Travel Abroad If Released 

CAIRO (Middle East Eye) – Laila Soueif, a prominent academic and mother of the British-Egyptian political activist Alaa Abd el-Fattah, has said that she expects her son to travel abroad if Egyptian authorities release him.
In an exclusive interview with Arabi 21, Soueif said that while she hoped for a speedy release for Alaa, “I have no information or expectations, whether positive or negative.” 
Abd el-Fattah was an icon of the 2011 Egyptian revolution and has spent eight of the past 10 years in jail on various charges.
