AN Egyptian Imam linked to the Spanish division of the Muslim Brotherhood is reportedly trying to reach a compromise with the Spanish government to avoid deportation.
It comes after Alaa Mohamed Said, who has allegedly been labelled as a threat to national security, was meant to be flown back to Cairo last week.
His lawyer is believed to have filed for asylum in Spain to the European Court of Human Rights.
Said had taken part in a hunger strike, however abandoned it while being held at an immigration detention centre in Aluche, Madrid.
It is also believed that Said received up to € 1.5 million from Qatar as part of his activity as an MB member in Logroñ city, Spain.
The Muslim Brotherhood group was labelled as a terrorist group by the Egyptian government in December 2013.
