Rights lawyer Clooney slams Canada over Al-Jazeera journalist

Prominent human rights lawyer Amal Clooney lashed out at the Canadian government, accusing Ottawa of “woefully inadequate” efforts to secure the repatriation of Al-Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy from Egypt. In a scathing rebuke of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government, Clooney said diplomats had made only “sheepish whimpers” to Cairo instead of the required concerted efforts to secure her client’s return. Canadian reporter Fahmy faces a fresh trial in Egypt over accusations that he supported the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood movement in his news coverage with colleagues, a charge he has rejected as absurd. A court freed Fahmy, Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed and other defendants on bail earlier this month after they spent more than 400 days in prison.
