The freed al-Jazeera journalist Peter Greste has warned that the “war on terror” is being used as an excuse by governments to limit press freedom as he attempts to garner support for a universal charter of media freedoms.

 

Greste returned to Australia in February after spending 400 days in a Cairo prison. He and his colleagues were convicted of supporting the banned Muslim Brotherhood group. An Egyptian national, Baher Mohamed, and a dual Egyptian-Canadian national, Mohamed Fahmy, still face retrial in Cairo.
