Mohamed Amashah, a dual Egyptian-American national, returned home to New Jersey on Monday after nearly 500 days in Egypt’s Tora prison without a trial. The Freedom Initiative, a U.S.-based group that represented Amashah, said he recused his Egyptian citizenship as a condition for his release. The U.S. government pressured Egypt to free Amashah during the pandemic, noting he suffered from asthma and autoimmune disease.
