Accused of supporting outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, Fahmy fears return to prison

Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy, who is on bail in Cairo, fears he and two other journalists will be ordered back in jail when a court in Cairo hands down its verdict on Thursday.Fahmy, the former Cairo bureau chief for Al Jazeera, was arrested in December 2013 along with two colleagues Australian Peter Greste and Egyptian Baher Mohamed. Egyptian authorities accused them of spreading false news and of supporting the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. The trio were found guilty with Fahmy and Greste sentenced to seven years in prison and with Mohamed receiving ten years. They spent more than a year behind bars before a new trial was ordered, and they were granted bail in February.

In an interview with CBC News in Cairo on the eve of the verdict, Fahmy says he’s had trouble sleeping because he’s worried about Thursday’s outcome.

“It’s really nerve wracking knowing that tomorrow my destiny will be decided by the judge,” said Fahmy on Wednesday.

“If this verdict is just, we should be exonerated of all charges,” Fahmy said.

Fahmy, however, is worried the ruling may be tainted by politics. Al Jazeera, he says, is seen by Egypt’s rulers as backing the Muslim Brotherhood, the group whose leader, Mohamed Morsi, became Egypt’s first elected president in 2012 before being ousted by the military a year later.
