Cairo International Airport earlier recieved the body of a Palestinian citizen who، according to some reports، was killed in one of Turkey's prisons. The body was handed to the victim's family to be transferred to Gaza Strip.

The Turkish authorities claimed that Zaki Mubarak، the victim، was a spy to the United Arab Emirates، and that he died after committing suicide. However، it failed so far to support its claims by any evidence.

Zaki Mubarak entered Turkey on March 30، and disappeared only four days later. A complaint was issued by Zaki's brother and daughter's lawyer to Egypt's Attorney General said that on April 19، Zaki's lawyer noted that his client was arrested by the Turkish authorities over false charges.

The lawyer said that Zaki would be released within few days، in case the Turkish authorities did not introduce an incriminating evidence، the complaint read.

"On the same day، we were shocked as Turkish media and [Doha-based] Al-Jazeera Channel have [adopted] an exaggeration [approach] and claimed that he (Zaki) has admitted [his crime] and that there is evidence against him،" the complaint added.
