Cairo seeks to attend investigation of spy suspect in Damascus

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry on Sunday requested the Syrian authorities to allow one of its diplomats to attend investigations into Mohamed Radwan, an Egyptian citizen accused in Damascus of spying for Israel.

“We want to make sure the investigation grants Radwan his full rights,” said Egyptian Assistant Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdel Hakam.

Abdel Hakam said Radwan, who also holds American nationality, had for the past nine months been working in Damascus as director of Petrographics, a petroleum services company that has branches in several Arab countries.

Syrian authorities said Radwan confessed to receiving money from Israel in return for pictures and video on Syria.
