Mar 1, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. Rand Paul released the following statement regarding reports confirming that a plane carrying previously detained American pro-democracy workers left Egypt on Thursday after a travel ban was lifted.  

"It brings me great relief to know the brave American pro-democracy workers in Egypt are safely returning home to the U.S. The baseless charges against these Americans and their unlawful detainment did not go unnoticed. For weeks, I worked to bring attention to the unjust actions of the Egyptian government and now their safe return home brings resolution and closure to their families and the country," Sen. Paul said.
