Peter Greste and Fellow Journalists to Finally Appear in Egyptian Court

By: Patrick Kingsley | The Guardian

Three al-Jazeera English journalists seized last December from their Cairo hotel rooms are due to appear in court on Thursday for the first time since their arrest on December 29 after spending the past fortnight locked up next-door to Egypt’s former prime minister and a few cells away from the leader of Mohamed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood.

Australian ex-BBC reporter Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian ex-CNN journalist Mohamed Fahmy and local producer Baher Mohamed are among 20 people accused of conspiring with the Brotherhood to tarnish Egypt’s international reputation.
