Egypt: We Never Threatened Amal Clooney
Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney says Egyptian officials threatened to arrest her after she criticized the country's judicial system.By Matt Moreno | January 4, 2015
Egypt's government says human rights lawyer Amal Clooney can come to the country "whenever she wants."

In an interview published Friday, Clooney told The Guardian she was preparing a report for the International Bar Association earlier this year critical of Egypt's government, saying the judicial system should be more independent.
