The Al Jazeera Journalist Who Spent More Than A Year In an Egyptian Prison Sues Network

Mohamed Fahmy, the Al Jazeera journalist who spent more than a year in an Egyptian prison, announced on Monday he is suing the network for $100 million for negligence and for supporting the Muslim brotherhood. Fahmy said at a press conference, “I am here to announce that I will set the record straight and put Al Jazeera on trial in Canada’s top court. The network not only deceived us journalists, breached contract and acted negligently toward us before the arrest, they also failed to reimburse me for my full legal fees."
