Egypt - Trial of 20 Al Jazeera journalists (January 30, 2014)
We were concerned to learn of the opening yesterday of the trial of 20 Al Jazeera journalists. France is also concerned about the regular threats and violence faced by journalists carrying out their work in Egypt.
France reaffirms its attachment to the freedom of expression and the freedom of the press, in Egypt as in the rest of the world. We will of course closely follow this trial, in coordination with our European partners.
