Al Jazeera rejects accusations against Ayman Gaballah
Al Jazeera completely rejects all accusations against Gaballah, which is a continuation of Egypt’s targeting Al Jazeera
and its journalists.
These unfounded accusations along with other accusations and criminal charges pushed against Al Jazeera is a further
attempt to target media freedom, and to tarnish the reputation of journalists and undermine their work.
The Al Jazeera spokesman said:
"The accusations against Ayman Gaballah – who is a renowned and respected Arab journalist - reveals how the Egyptian
judicial system is politicised and continues to use its authority to intimidate journalists and to stop them from
carrying out their work.”
Al Jazeera Media Network calls on the Egyptian authorities to refrain from character assassination against journalists
in their attempts to unfairly tarnish reputations, and to allow journalists to practice their profession freely without
any intimidation or harassment.
The network renews its demand for all jailed journalists to be released and stands firmly by all its colleagues.
