    “Egypt President Sisi ‘will not interfere’ in al-Jazeera case”

    ’ “We must respect judicial rulings and not criticise them even if others do not understand this”, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said.

    A court in Cairo found Australian Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed guilty of spreading false news’

    Sisi is upholding judicial rulings. Very democratic of him.

    I think many folks on this forum will find some affinity with many Egyptians as they do not seem to like Al- Jazeera either:

    “While Sisi would placate international critics with a pardon, inside Egypt he would gain little, with many applauding the convictions. Al-Jazeera has been portrayed as an enemy of the state due to the perception that its coverage favours the supporters of Egypt’s ousted president, Mohamed Morsi.”

    I imagine them thinking:
    "Meh, they’re Al-Jazeera, let them hang with the rest."
