An article in Fairfax Media today presented a differing interpretation of my views on the case of an Egyptian man currently held in detention in Australia.
I did not say Australia should be wary of this specific detainee's conviction in Egypt.
My only comment on this specific case was:
"I would be interested in further information that throws light on the nature of the prosecution."
I thank Fairfax Media for updating the article this afternoon.
