Ilan Grapel's father Daniel criticized Tuesday morning Egypt's conduct of the affair that kept his son in jail on espionage charges since June 12, Army Radio reported.

"They were looking for things that do not exist. In any normal country they would have throw it [the case] out. There is no connection between my son and the things attributed to him," Ilan's father said in an interview with Army Radio.

The Security Cabinet was scheduled to meet on Tuesday to approve a deal with Egypt, by which 25 Egyptian prisoners being held in Israel would be released in exchange for Grapel.
