Peter Greste

Reporting news as they thought they should

Reporting news for the common good

Working for Al Jazeera

Setting the news agenda from a different perspective

Canadian Fahmy, Egyptian Mohammad and Australian Greste

Up until they were arrested.

Experienced reporters from around the world

Accused and jailed for seven years and more for false reports

The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights

Urged authorities to promptly release

But this brought no kind of reprieve

Human Rights

Seen internationally as political prisoners by Amnesty

Due to the nature of the trial, evidence and sentencing

Amnesty International

Legislation changed for foreigners in the Cairo jail

And Peter Greste was deported after four hundred days

The other two got out on bail

Reporting news as they thought they should

Reporting news for the common good
