The recent trial of three Al Jazeera staff, falsely accused of spreading false news and suporting the outlawed Muslim brotherhood ended today with all three staff found guilty.
Despite shaky evidence on behalf of the prosecution which was highly political, two of the journalists were sentenced to 7 years jail, and another 10 years because they apparently found a bullet shell in his home (somehow that equals terrorism). Ten other journalists were convicted (in absentia) and were sentenced to 10 years.
This is absolutely disgusting from a nation who claims to be working towards a democracy. Shame on them
