25 November, 15:13

    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO , NOVEMBER 25 - International lawyer Amal Clooney has asked Egyptian prosecutor general Hisham Barakat to release Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy on bail on medical grounds until after a verdict in the appeals trial. Fahmy was sentenced in June to seven years in prison for endangering Egypt's national security, falsifying news, and helping terrorists.

    In a statement released through her London-based chambers, the prominent rights lawyer and wife of actor George Clooney said Fahmy not only never supported the Muslim Brotherhood, which is now officially a 'terrorist organization' in Egypt, he had also taken part in the June 30 protests last year against former Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi.
