arab or not arab , he should have been treated properly. my country has several populations so we don't put arab (even if technically there is no arab) and non arab on different levels as far a the law is concerned. the problem here is the absence of authority to regulate such abuse. as the new govt pretends to be more concerned about people's rights, it is indeed the right time to ask for this man's case to be re-examined. where are the proofs he was spying...etc...if he was unfairly jailed, he should be released. if not, he should be treated with decency regardless. but you don't eliminate corruption and such behaviour over night....as long as people who abuse their power are not accountable, such disgusting thing will happen over and over.
