Fahmy, Baher, and Greste are pardoned, along with other human rights activists, by Egypt’s President Sisi. Fahmy:
[I still] can’t believe it. [Baher and I] have not digested the fact that we are free [yet].
Canadian officials say will help Fahmy with his departure from Egypt:
Canada is pleased that Egyptian President el-Sisi has granted Mr. Fahmy a pardon. We look forward to Mr. Fahmy reuniting with his family and loved ones, and his return to Canada.
