A step closer, but Shawkan still faces another 5 years on probation where his freedom is likely to be seriously curtailed, so let’s not abandon the cry until he is truly free & able to go where he wants, when he wants.

There is no legal reason for to remain in jail, his release order should've been signed or given to the Police station where he's held 10 days ago. Why the delay? This photojournalist is innocent & has been 5 years & a half in jail. Enough is enough

Where is ? Why hasn’t he been released? Journalism is not a crime. Shawkan has been in prison since 2013 because his photography documented the Sisi regimes’s massacre of +800 people in August of that year. From 6 days ago: 👇🏽
