I call for the immediate and unconditional release of journalists Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed. I also call on you to quash the convictions of the three men and any other defendants based solely on their peaceful exercise of the rights to freedoms of expression.
Finally, I urge Egypt to respect, protect and uphold the right to freedom of expression. Journalism is not a crime.
