a media campaign aimed at what they call spreading chaos. journalist is guilty until proved innocent. much of you don't have money enough. and. when the moment. you know it was over then. i want. whether the and. then if you know it's going to be a. it will be. a little bit of a very young and religious icon on the muslim brotherhood. but

a then i am alone i like that just a tad but i'm all for the one k. faith and color. really eleanor said going in that the jimmy road that i met is easy for them and 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 it called spreading chaos however article seventy one of the egyptian constitution say's no cost to the will sanction shall be imposed for crimes committed by way of publication or the public nature there of the half a must be at about the half of that a medication that i don't know who is you know. 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 ways
suspended three hundred eighty three by relations of press freedom to 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 the cause any cause for how to live their lives to the pistols like a man in medicine when a whole town seems. confident and so have you had. the most. were what kind of person was me me you know well know how. on a you are a shit about your salami. you will 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 zur 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 gyp's 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 on it 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 deal to.
a billion a. year well below a few mccann i mean. there was a bit why do. we have no information about the reason of his arrest and the woman was 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. if you have it hard. to get. about that but i. also feel. this is a. matter of. doing i.
i could get them. help. then ask if they demanded more true leads on health grounds. i read. them. and more cool. to be with you with this total of three. of our most of all they got a mother. here we got forty seven i can now and then you and i. he has you know when you gender joinery says in the tech approach freedom and freedom of expression which doesn't mean joinery storable of the los we have every citizen the duty to respect close i came not to steal or kill someone we don't any reason but what what 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 interest in december twenty sixth team came three years have to mine and that of three other al jazeera journalists. i was released in twenty fourteen and my three colleagues the police. yanni as i mean mahmoud who. i thought was the one to. have a son and a colony in musty. talk of a woman is without one a militant and. modernism went out to me as a man that was about the africa. in. more than luther fit or. in like in the skin in the hannan. in the senate i thought of my who had. been the world been more than one of them
out. and. we had the media we had. a lot of the last week we have here at home. and the. i'm not going to. call and i will ask how it. is immediately from. jimmy and they say that what it was in the me that i mean if it is at the feet or. what. and look at the short end they have a more than a mostly. a c a c
that c.s.c. has been awesome but they have a. lot in the last thirty seven that they. emerge for many. voices in the international media concern and has done it by working on a very independent two way in the sense that they don't depend on national governments so i can imagine their way. here are reported to. was not welcome for the government because they couldn't have any pressure on this . model though what we don't know how to do it with hundreds and know if you've got the muslim on muslim world got on your side. you have them and they want the whole
model confusing. several agencies have asked the egyptian government to explain why i met with the same has been detained without trial. and in february twenty eighth team the u.n. called for his immediate release. so we wrote letters as soon as he was detained to the egyptian president mr. member soon brussels because. it's close to the g.o.p.'s and we do know that the fact he was jailed in the snow was asked why precisely our colleague was detained we received no answer from. these we wrote those letters to united nations you know. mr bug. by that time to be known as the fact and the united nations warry i won't. press freedom situation in egypt engineer
a little political. and one of the not that there. was a could have because i like. one of them. but at the. other. when i look at the i'm a. possibility. but he. also has a leg up in mahmoud's 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 obligation 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 mad because he might but it's. a.
little funny if. i thought it was important to make one more attempt to speak to the head of the egyptian supreme council for media regulation or mohamed that meant to ask him about mahmoud hussein's. and it is not. if you must stick with. the machine you must be. going to get the kind of. must ignore whom. you must.
when i look whole it's often just a hunch is it. could be you know. it was a bit of meat measuring. managed to get a shot to get a. different you want to. put it. on the muscle mechanic. krishna. god must be. shocked at how. good their smiles are. now that i have them to give them care. and most of the bother to signal the something new that can something maybe.
happen to believe in. balance. just. how bad the mama mughal men were long before how bad the most. any of us the members are over for one thing that i do not mean. nothing what. does that all make and has new. journey be so i merely not know what her scene was so i thought he had the ill for a suburb in this but the home well not to let who be its lucky sort of he got to be walked in one can. be had been many expressions of sonny berry tea with more insane under the same banner as the campaign to free me and my three could be denialism is not
