Urges Egypt to overturn convictions

Makes Statement

Clooney, who represents Fahmy, urges the Egyptian President to overturn the Cairo convictions.

The verdict today sends a very dangerous message in Egypt. It sends a message that journalists can be locked up for simply doing their job, for telling the truth and reporting the news…[Every third party who has weighed in on the lengthy case says] there is no evidence to sustain any of the charges….It sends a dangerous message that there are judges in Egypt who will allow their courts to become instruments of political repression and propaganda.
