PA Leader Son Deported from Egypt
By Micah Halpern
Ramy Shaath, son of Palestinian leader Nabil Shaath, was deported from Egypt.
Shaath the father is a senior adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. That means that his son, Ramy, is from one of the most public and entitled families in the region.
Ramy Shaath has been in pretrial confinement in Egypt since 2019, accused of having ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. That could mean that he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood or that he was a fixer for them - connecting and making contacts to help the Muslim Brotherhood fight Israel.
Egypt has designated the Muslim Brotherhood as illegal and as a terrorist group. Part of Ramy’s agreement and deportation was that he renounce his Egyptian citizenship.
In other words, this agreement means that there was a diplomatic agreement allowing him out of detention, stopping a prosecution and facilitating a deportation. Ramy Shaath should consider himself lucky – very lucky.
