Ugandan authorities released on Monday 14 Egyptian expats who had been arrested for several charges, according to Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs and Egyptians Abroad Yasser Mahmoud Hashim.

The release came as a result of efforts exerted by Egypt's ambassador in Kampala Tarek Sallam, Hashim said.

The expats were accused of overstaying their residence periods and practicing unlicensed commercial activities, among other charges.

The Ugandan authorities were highly cooperative, said Hashim, who urged Egyptian expats to abide by visa-related laws and regulations in other countries.
