Kuwait hands three alleged Muslim Brotherhood members over to Egypt

Kuwait has handed over to Egypt three Egyptian residents allegedly members of Muslim Brotherhood, an organization designated criminal in the North African Arab country.
The three men, reports say, had been detained and had been charged for “launching an intense campaign among Egyptians [in Kuwait] to get them to violate public order and protest against their country’s government, The New Arab reports citing Kuwait media Al Qabas.
The three men according to the media were arrested in the Farwaniya Governorate, south of Kuwait City, and subsequently handed them over to “Egyptian Interpol”
The handover is in line with a security cooperation agreement between the two countries, in exchange for criminals, Al Qabas notes.
Egypt has blacklisted the Muslim Brotherhood organization. The group has been dismantled in Egypt after current president Abdelfattah al-Sisi ascended to power in 2013 following a military coup to then elected leader Mohamed Morsi.
Thousands of members of the banned organization have been killed and handed lengthy prison sentences. Morsi himself died last year in June during a court hearing.
Kuwait May last year handed over eight men allegedly members of Muslim Brotherhood. The move irked rights group, including Human Rights Watch which alerted that the men “serious risk of torture and persecution”.
