Al Jazeera correspondent speaks out on journalists’ trial

February 20th, 2014
03:29 PM ET

Members of the press gathered outside a heavily guarded Cairo courthouse Thursday as three al Jazeera journalists jailed in Egypt appeared in court for the first time since their arrest.

Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy, and Baher Mohammed were brought before a judge in a cage. While the court was in recess, they shouted messages to other journalists to pass on to their families.

The three men were detained more than 50 days ago.

The Egyptian government accuses them of joining or aiding a terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, which they have categorized as such.

Journalists around the world have staged protests demanding their release.

All three have pled not guilty to the charges against them.

A number of other al Jazeera staff not present in the court today were also charged by the Egyptian authorities.

One of them is Sue Turton, a reporter for the network. Click above to watch Turton speak with CNN’s Hala Gorani, in for Christiane Amanpour.

    The arrested are our eyes, the excess force exerted by the Egyptician will not earn them credit. Leave the media alone because your success too was a creation of the objective reports by the same.

    It is as if Tahrir Square never happened. El Sisi could simply have taken over from Hosni Mubarak.
