Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein, an Egyptian national who was arrested in Cairo on December 23, 2016 while on vacation with his family, has, as of yesterday, spent 1,400 days in prison under arbitrary and illegal detention by Egyptian authorities without trial or conviction. Al Jazeera reports that Hussein was accused of “incitement against state institutions and broadcasting false news with the aim of spreading chaos”, allegations he and Al Jazeera, which has been portrayed as Egypt’s national enemy for its coverage of the Muslim Brotherhood group, have both refuted.
