Jailed Al-Jazeera journalist Ahmed Mansour arrived back in Qatar on Tuesday, blaming his controversial two-day detention in Germany on pressure from the Egyptian government.

Mansour’s plane touched down in Qatar at 11.45 pm, and he was greeted by a number of Al Jazeera executives and members of his family in the VIP lounge of Hamad International Airport.

Speaking to reporters in Arabic, Mansour said: “There are lobbies that promote Sisi in the world and play the role of public relations.

“They put pressure on the German government because the Egyptian government is rubbish and has no value.”

He added that his arrest had been “political”.

“From the first second, I knew I was innocent, I did not do anything wrong or hurt anyone. Everything for me was clear, I was strong all the time.”
