Al Jazeera Demands Release Of Remaining Two Jailed Journalists


Al Jazeera has said that the campaign to free its
journalists in Egypt will not end till all three have been released. Peter
Greste is on his way out of the country after 400 days in detention, but Baher
Mohamed and Mohamed Fahmy remain behind bars. The network says that all three
have to be exonerated and the convictions against its other journalists tried
in absentia also have to be lifted.

Mostefa Souag, acting Director General of Al Jazeera Media
Network, said, “We’re pleased for Peter and his family that they are to be
reunited. It has been an incredible and unjustifiable ordeal for them, and they
have coped with incredible dignity. Peter’s integrity is not just intact, but
has been further enhanced by the fortitude and sacrifice he has shown for his
profession of informing the public. We will not rest until Baher and Mohamed also
regain their freedom. The Egyptian authorities have it in their power to finish
this properly today, and that is exactly what they must do.”
