The International Center for Journalists deplores the decision by the Egyptian court convicting five current or former ICFJ employees of charges of working in Egypt illegally. ICFJ will appeal the decision.
“ICFJ condemns this outrageous verdict in the strongest possible terms,” said ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan. “None of our employees has done anything wrong, and our work has never been political. We were simply upgrading the skills and standards of Egyptian professional and citizen journalists.
