There were reports that Gaddafi had sent several Libyan politicians directly to Mubarak’s prisons. Libyan writer Hisham Mather has written in his autobiographical novel The Anatomy of Disappearance that his father, who disappeared from Libya, was later found in a notorious prison in Cairo. Mubarak’s special torture chambers, many of which were ‘missing’ in the name of rebel politics, were carried out from the Arab countries. Only a few survived. Many others disappeared, leaving no clue what the outside world could understand. Mubarak had the same attitude towards his own citizens and those who disagreed. The dictator showed the non-Arab countries how to make the dictatorship work best, so the other dictators saw Mubarak as their master and brother.
