The release of Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste from an Egyptian jail may have been meant to deflect criticism on the Egyptian government. But there's no getting around the Sisi regime's poor record on human rights and the law.
For more than a year, journalists and rights advocates around the world have campaigned on behalf of three Al Jazeera journalists behind bars in Egypt. Today, a court in Cairo ordered a new trial for the three men. But they are not being released.
The three journalists are charged with a range of offenses, from aiding the Muslim Brotherhood to fabricating false news. After nearly two months in prison, they had a brief day in court before the trial was postponed into March.
