a listener of water. and most of them never been to printing money political if that's the best leaders you know for the money. because you know sort of the no not the. only. problem with some of the. corn many. believe is going to. be. from one to the middle of the year i mean my. one part of a high temperatures you are going to vary your leisure of m.p.'s so now we have a car. when i was wired a hammock when i was an amish i mean. what the majority i mean if i mean more leisure after and i had a model. for the bottom of your head enough for new york on senators i mean russia
i was in the army. let me out if all that would look at your. mom would have been. the most of the. blues. and. so i think one of. the others. may end in a bubble i mean this is probably. some second over the. develop the elements i got a first ballet of the alyea. machine which might more than offer to. soften the thought a. different scene was arrested in cairo on the nineteenth of december
twenty sixth in. i am up to me and i also work well i'll just so his situation speaks to me directly because i was arrested in cairo and twenty thirteen. i spent three hundred and nine days in an egyptian jail and while i was there i rode my thoughts down on scraps of paper. my moods case brought everything flawed in back. like mahmoud i could see no end to my detention and i took the dramatic step of going on hunger strike for five months to draw attention to my case and try and regain my freedom. i can remember the loneliness and how slowly time passes. to date my mood has had no cold herring so there are no formal charges against him. and i'm going to have to look
after luck nothing but within that one can your going to think how do i it how well he is it off was that a happy outcome bad going to happen how. could i want to place. my mood for sane arrived at cairo international airport early on the morning on the nineteenth of december twenty sixth. he was arrested detained for fifteen hours at his passport confiscated but was then released. the following day he went to egypt in state t.v. to make an administrative request but he was told this. required approval by egyptian security officials. two days later on the twenty second of december twenty sixth seen for seign was detained in an unknown location. then two weeks later on the fifth of january twenty seventh seen istanbul he was told it was being
held in poor a prison south of cairo. i didn't want to put up a. little more and i'm also. i had a. lot of. but the thought was that if. one. arabic and other media broke the story of hussein's their arrest. at one point. that. the egyptian interior ministry released a statement accusing the same of carrying out and inciting a media campaign aimed at what they call spreading chaos. journalist
challenged or detained in egypt. when it comes to media freedom egypt is rated very low indeed by international human rights groups. in egypt. the state is pretty much employing all of the tools that we see repressive regimes around the world employed to restrict have expressed all at once so there is direct intimidation harassment arrest of human rights defenders and journalists and activists. torture and mistreatment of these individuals once they're arrested and they're detained. reporters without borders is an international organization monitoring media freedom. been twenty seven seen it but lived a press freedom index a league table of different countries on the a treatment of the media and journalists to get drunk to egypt number one hundred
and sixty one out of a hundred and eighty and the black list of countries considered what they called prisons for journalists national might be how much. was that the woman in ireland how wonderful book life given that the. as of the well of the. scene. why i think is enough for you i had. in the absence of any judicial process the division media set to work on the case of mahmoud abbas saying. t.v. channels launched an intensive media campaign against a former colleague. mahmoud had once worked as chief correspondent for the government run now t.v. channel. danny completely at home before the valley.
what was it back in the valley know these suckers for a year but to see it unfold often. i mean who am i. to say a false messiah how many. of them have been on here. thank you no. i was. three years. ago when. they even want to give you know around the hoard. of the most of the second for more. than
decided to visit their reporters without borders in the french capital. what i learned. it's a huffy any. man if one excellent mamma and maybe ohio don't be. be. sworn in there matt. a i don't believe in it she said and so huffy our. family anika noni out there were no. back in doha i talked to me of mahmoud hussein school leaks at al-jazeera arabic.
they are no formal charges against him so we only have the allegations by the egyptian interior ministry and the campaign and the media which accused him of spreading false news. and i asked another dizzier presenter who'd worked with him in the field and in the newsroom if this was at all likely. what was. you know that they have they didn't they hear the artist when one of the other from the other hit out of town so i was almost ah that was sort of a mark of what was. it that it and the court in the interest. why the hummer. i let it go how will we have that infinitely doesn't
matter they said. this is a study in. the international federation of journalists is the largest group representing the profession why. it was founded in nineteen twenty six in paris but relaunched in belgium in one thousand nine hundred fifty two it now has around six hundred thousand members in one hundred forty countries. saying the media is not. trust you have to describe facts one just publish false information or incorrect information once again if you accuse someone you have you have to show what and when. allegedly spread false information and check if they didn't correct the information afterward. let's not about that as you have the more data you have the other but let's be back in melbourne a man. shall not. have to listen to be an. elephant
feet that. he. went to him and. yet he has them going and it will be. a sort of. mini the middle just a few bullet but the. people of the him could have been more so but man it. so we have one for now one of them at the same and i want to know you. want to thank you. for going to see happen from time. magazine saying is a very experienced journalist whose career began in egypt in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine he worked for t.v.
channels in better rain iran and sudan before joining our disease in two thousand and three because i knew what i thought when i didn't. like it not that i would want a lot of stuff i'm like i'm understaffed here when i'm in it. and i worked economic aid him in norway and now quintessential politics is the only real can how bad can you believe in madagascar man ninety what are you what can feed us what i offered to them sticking what out well now for them they are now in the senate now they're saying things you can say as it were by asking others to see right colleagues about mahmoud's korea and the television joining that is the us and i would have to get a. thirty a good then. i know what. all suffered are shut out in a time when there were a lot of we have seen some philistine. can vary but in the last three or most of the. above then i thought of.
a. problem a little metal and turn it. no i don't go into my. not to how. to plan to get them i know that and how. come you're not that i'm sure not. knowing you did not knock on. wood all of the tree out. there because i'm not the one i won most of our job to him a being put to him well i'll be out here opposite us at the moment as you know you're the. king of art in the soft. had to
me. what the future will how. come you know i tried to get egyptian government officials comment on my word for saints case. as is my family my. family. and i saw this kind of visit and. and i talked to international media freedom agency. your rarely find a government of any stripe taken action and will admit that it's. for the benefit of saddam people. so they see the importance of.
witness documentaries that open your eyes. at this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. where ever you. in two thousand and eight raggy traveled across the united states discovering what it was like to be both a patriotic american and a devout muslim can you be muslim and american you have to be american first i didn't have much appreciation for why it would be a big deal that a muslim be elected to the united states congress but ten years on what has changed rewind islam in america at this time on al-jazeera.
in a world where journalism as an industry is changing we have al-jazeera fortunate to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that passenger that drive and present the stories in a way that is important to our viewers. everyone has a story worth hearing. and cover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent that's why i joined al-jazeera . about this and in doha the top stories on al-jazeera people affected by gun violence in the u.s. have express their anger at a meeting with president donald trump at the white house drugs being told to take urgent action to change gun ownership laws i'm very angry that this happened because it keeps happening nine eleven happened once and they fixed everything how
many schools how many children have to get shot it stops here with this administration and me it's not going to i'm not going to sleep until it's fixed or tom says he will take steps to check gun violence he says he supports the idea of arming teachers and school stuff if they have special training. this would only be obviously for people that are very adept at handling a gun and it would be it's called concealed carry where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them they'd go for special training and they would. be there and you would no longer have a gun free zone gun free zone to a maniac because they're all cowards the gun free zone is let's go in and let's attack because bullets aren't coming back at us the head of the u.n. has called for an immediate halt to attacks in syria's eastern saying civilians

a connection could put the fock in breach of the two hundred sixteen peace deal those are the headlines now it's back to al-jazeera world five and. i am a. zero arabic. i am looking at why my colleague much the same has been in jail in egypt for the real year without trial. he is experienced and as covered several pollutions as a foreign correspondent. as an egyptian the revolution in twenty eleven was a huge challenge for him here what was he like to work with when i'm in the mood and innocently kind with i wasn't what i was. and had a king to tell them what can them and he made them that man with a better hope are. the savvy you have. and what money i would stand for made them that i love my land that's just
a tad but i'm out of the what ok for you and all of. that really eleanor said go in there man that jimmy road on that is easy for them that they have been no formal charges against mahmoud an interior ministry statement simply said that he had carried out a media campaign aimed at what he called spreading chaos however article seventy one of the egyptian constitution say yes no course today will sanction shall be imposed for crimes committed by way of publication or the public nature there of a half a mile from the bottom of the hof is that about issues that i don't know who is you know does our head that i would know and i know most of them. would in twenty seventeen said over seventy journalists have been jailed that year . more than five hundred twenty six way suspended three hundred eighty three by relations of press freedom it is six attacks by security forces on journalists
seventy one other attacks one hundred seventy three journalists banned from working and twenty eight investigations trials or imprisonment of journalists for a look at the how to when it was still the best go to sleep when in medicine when a whole consumes. confident and so have you have. the muscle that we're. going to present me me oh well no how. do you want to shit about your salami. you'll rarely find a government of any stripe who will take an action and will admit that it's illegal they're always going to try to cover up their actions with this veneer of the rule of law this veneer of legality. they will cite legal. legal precedents or justification zahraa laws that have been passed but it doesn't
actually make these things legal when the law that was passed actually violates the egyptian constitution or actually violates international human rights obligations i was in a gypsy in jail for three hundred and nine days when this program is best shown in english mahmoud will have been detained for four hundred twenty eight days increasing every day. you know your. people how to get any today. what i'm. i asked the former chief justice of the city office if it was legal to the team would the same which seemingly indefinitely absolutely up the hudson that. you have could not. feel well if you i mean.
there was a bit of i do. we have no information about the reason of his arrest and the one no one is informed that the. last december if i remember it was the first. suspect we didn't know what exactly was told to both his activity which would explain why he was detained and when you do time someone without clear explanation it's a breach of. rights. which case screamed repression here is an individual who was a journalist who was not even actively reporting at the time he was arrested even though that would have been his right to do. he was targeted because of his
affiliation with a media organization with al-jazeera and arrested and detained without any due process whatsoever that is that i ask the judge about what's called preventative custody and why mahmood had not been released after a given period of time. hold that the. if you have it has. how you. felt. about that but i. also feel. this is a. matter of. doing i. think if you mr safir you are just going to let you know. if you don't you are
much relief on health grounds. and. other. whoa when you gender joinery says in the tech approach freedom and freedom of expression which doesn't mean. we have every citizen the duty to respect. or kill someone we don't know any reason but it's what happened with what we called the criminal criminalization of journalistic work namely you describe their work as
a crime and this is in the press freedom. for science addressed in december twenty sixth team came three years have to mine and that of three other al jazeera journalists. i was released in twenty four and my three colleagues the police. who are. when i. have a son i know a colony in my city. is without one a militant and. moslems went out with me as a man at war but the infant car. in the. morgue when the safer the. skin in the hand on. my in the had. been the would have been more than one of them on. but other than
the incentive that. is that no matter what. we have the in what we have at home here what on what he said today yes and that. last week we had here at the home well there's nothing. at the camelot and that's. not going to have an inside. feel caught and then left the way it. is immediately from. jimmy and they say that what it was in the me that a calamity if you just at the. feet he. was a swimmer and look at the shot in the heaven what the most that he thought of the. c.s.c. that c.s.e. had been awesome at the head they are just the c.s.i.
. more than enlisted ethan that they. emerge for many. voices in the international media concert and has done it by working on a very independent in the sense that they don't depend on national governments so i can imagine their way. here are reported to about egyptian. military was not welcome for the government because they couldn't have any pressure on this. couldn't you know one thing about model though what we're doing that we've had this and know if you go along on one of them who are going to you know. you have a million dollar to move in a few. several agencies have asked the egyptian. government
explain what you're saying has been detained without trial. and in february twenty eighth team the u.n. called for his immediate release. so we. saw him as he was detained to the egyptian president mr el-sisi and to. brussels because it's close to the office and we do know that the fact he was jailed and also what ask why precisely our colleague was detained we received no answer for from. these we wrote those letters to united nations you know secretary mr bug. by that time to denounce the fact and the united nations warry to. press freedom situation in egypt in janeiro. and was not that there.
was a could not because i like. one of them. but. when i look at the. possibility. that he. feels like he has a leg up in my case the one that we presented to the united nations working group on arbitrary detention we requested that that working group. analyze my case declare him to be arbitrarily detained under international law and egypt's international human rights application immediately release him under the least restrictive means possible and to let him exercise his right to freedom of movement and reunite with his family and go where he may the root can to be human rights organizations petition says mr hussein has been arbitrarily detained for one
hundred twenty nine days including eighty nine days in solitary confinement he continues to be subject to grave prison conditions and possible abuses the continuation of such deprivations of his rights constitute serious threats to mr hussein's health to his physical and psychological integrity and to his life accordingly we request that the working group transmits an urgent appeal to the government of egypt by the most rapid means possible on behalf of mr hussein. because i. mean. living with him. because he might but it'll. be a. bit of fun if.
the whole so often just a hunch is it. could be that. it was a bit of. a mini magnet managed to get a. differing view. on the muscle mechanics mistreated good measure. it was enough for her to learn was shocked at how. good their smiles are there are now that i have them to give them to. understand i. am a suitable for signal the something new that and something. i. happen to believe in. balance. just.
how bad the maya mughal men were long before how bad the most. any of us the members are noble for what frightens them the knowledge. nothing what so. much that home again has a new. long. journey be a millionaire mom would have seen what was so nice he had the ill for a suburb in this but the home well not to let who be it lucky sort of he didn't get. to have been many expressions of sunny dairy tea with more insane under the same banner as the campaign to free me and my it frequently denialism is not a crime. this was in the i'll just years to deal in doha. and
