Amal Clooney is risking arrest with a scathing report she compiled on the corrupt Egyptian judicial system.
Amal blasted the country’s judicial system for flaws that eventually led to the conviction of three Al Jazeera journalists accused of aiding the Muslim Brotherhood.
Now an attorney for one of the trio, Clooney wrote a scathing report.
“When I went to launch the report, first of all they stopped us from doing it in Cairo,” Clooney told the UK’s Guardian newspaper this week. “They said: ‘Does the report criticize the army, the judiciary, or the government?’ We said: ‘Well, yes.’ They said: ‘Well then, you’re risking arrest.’”
Amal Clooney’s report, compiled on behalf of the International Bar Association, suggested Egypt end the controversial practice of hand picked judges for high-profile cases!
