• The heartbreak of more injustice in Egypt – #FreeAJstaff


    My heart goes out to those journalists sentenced in Egypt and to their families. While I was never imprisoned, I still face a five-year sentence thanks to the NGO trial in 2013. You can read about the similarities in the two trials here. We need to do all we can to get these, and all other wrongly convicted and imprisoned, journalists out of prison and back to their families.

  • Congressional Testimony re: Egypt NGO case

    I submitted written testimony to the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on June 12, 2013 regarding the Egypt NGO case. You can find my testimony here. I and 15 other Americans were sentenced to five years prison. Our Egyptian colleagues are now in exile and cannot go home without being thrown in prison.
