Egypt has come down strongly on human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. According to recent reports, Egypt's government representatives have publicly blasted Clooney for her false allegations that she was threatened with arrest last year by Egyptian officials.

"We have nothing against her," said Interior Ministry spokesman, Hani Abdel Latif, as reported by New York Daily. "She should say exactly who said that. Why not specify from the start who told her that?"

Aol has also reported further that Egypt's government has declared that 36-year-old Clooney can come to the country "whenever she wants." The country's Interior Ministry has reportedly told the state-run news agency MENA that claims raised by Clooney which created shock wave in Egypt and around the world are completely baseless and untrue.

As reported earlier, human rights activist and newly married wife of actor George Clooney has disclosed that during her stay in Egypt last year, she was threatened with arrest as one of her reports uncovered the loopholes in their judiciary system. Clooney's report largely focused on the Egypt's policy of allowing government officials to handpick judges which in turn influence the whole court proceedings.

The 85-page report was considered highly controversial due to its strong criticism against Egypt's judiciary system. It was compiled on behalf of the International Bar Association and clearly suggested that Egypt's judicial system was 'insufficiently independent'. It was reportedly written before the human rights lawyer became involved in high profile case of Al Jazeera journalists which attracted worldwide media attention.

In her interview with The Guardian, Clooney has voiced concern over the fate of her client and Canada based Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy and his two other colleague Australian journalist Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed. She reportedly admitted that flawed practices in Egyptian judiciary system has resulted in the wrongful detainment of her client.

The three highly professional and award winning journalist are detained in Egypt since December 2013 and charged with glorifying Muslim Brotherhood which is a blacklisted terrorist organization in the country. Clooney's client Fahmy and Australian journalist Greste still have chances of getting deported out of Egypt back to their respective home countries.
