JERAA condemns jailing of Al -Jazeera jouralists


The Journalism Education and Research Association of Australia (JERAA) condemns in the strongest possible terms the sentences handed down to Al-Jazeera journalists Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed.

The Egyptian government should immediately intervene, and demonstrate that journalism should not be considered a crime in its country.

The three journalists have been condemned to lengthy terms in jail, just for doing the job of reporting on events in Cairo.

During a chaotic and farcical trial no evidence has been presented to back up the claims of the prosecution that the journalists either defamed Egypt or backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

The JERAA is made up of members who are educating the future generation of journalists in this country. These young journalists are being taught to report fearlessly, ethically and without favour.

Egypt should set an example and immediately release the Al-Jazeera reporters from jail.
