Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 - Egyptian Society of Australia (ESA)

The Egyptian Society of Australia (ESA) is concerned that the welcomed news of the release of foreign journalists from Egyptian jails, including Peter Greste, will now mean that more than 100 Egyptian journalists and photographers will soon be 'out of sight and out of mind'.    

ESA is therefore releasing the names of 101 Egyptian journalists and photographers that are known to be in Egyptian prisons to the Australian media.

In a recent leaked letter from jailed Egyptian journalist Abdullah Al Fakhrani, who is also the founder of RASSD News network, he said "In Egypt it is better for a journalist upon being arrested covering such events to be charged as a protester than to be charged as a journalist". A translation of this letter is attached to the release.

The Chairman for the Egyptian Society of Australia, Mr Mohammad Helmy, said "We need to be cognisant that while Mr Peter Greste is out, Egypt remains to be one of the top ten worst jailers of journalists in the world." He added, "The number of Egyptian Journalists currently in Egyptian prisons is astounding but they don't get anywhere as much global media attention as foreign journalists and therefore, we are releasing their names to the Australian media."
