Canadian Journalists for Free Expression Press Conference with Mohamed Fahmy in Toronto

After over 400 days in an Egyptian prison and a nearly two-year trial and retrial process that ended with a conviction on spurious charges, Fahmy was pardoned by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on September 23 and departed Egypt on October 6. With CJFE, he will conduct a press-only conference upon his return at Ryerson University. Following statements from Fahmy, his lawyers and CJFE Executive Director Tom Henheffer, Fahmy will take questions from members of the media.
