Yeah, so what if he's an oppressive abusive criminal bastard? He can still be in love! In fact, it's the stuff of a good Hollywood RomCom! :P

One could wonder... when was Egypt democratic? :?


It is now confirmed that his motives were political. In his 4 page document he talks about the situation in Egypt and he asks from Western governments not to support the current Egyptian government. His letter had nothing to do with his ex-wife... the whole story had nothing to do with a "love story". Our government simply didn't want all these to be broadcast at a time when the whole world was tuned in and listening because the current Egyptian government is our friends. The truth will come out later gradually... but at that point nearly nobody will care about this because it would be old news... not "breaking news" that goes on for hours in all major channels.

I knew it was a cover up!

I found it hard to believe the guy wouldn't just buy an airfare to Cyprus if he wanted to be re-United with an ex wife.

Cyprus Government should have just released the real motives. It makes the Cyprus Government look foolish. The British would have been listening to everything so you can just imagine what they would be thinking.

But since it was deemed better to cover up, couldn't Anastasiades come up with a more plausible motive? Hijacking a plane to see an ex was totally absurd. What was he expecting? Just to walk out of Larnaca, see a florist, get a bottle of red and chocolates and knock on his ex's door? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Firstly, that plane would have been running so low on fuel. Reserves are only 45 minutes. Cutting it very fine. Should have picked another flight with better margins.

The reason he could not just buy a ticket for Cyprus

In fact, Mr. Mustafa was a desperado of another kind. Egyptian security officials said he had been on the run since 2011, when he was among hundreds of people who escaped prison during the 18-day uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak. He had been imprisoned on multiple charges of forgery and fraud, the officials said.

That meant Mr. Mustafa had been unable to leave Egypt to see his former wife, with whom he had lived in Cyprus until the 1990s.


and
In 1988 Mustafa was convicted on six counts of forging passports and given a suspended sentence. He was later deported to Egypt but re-entered Cyprus on an assumed Qatari identity, caught, and again deported in 1990.

All that and just a suspended sentence.

Yet some Al Jazeera journals were threatened with life in prison.

The suspended sentence was from Cyprus. The Egyptians had locked the toe-rag up.

Send him back there... Soon.
