Amal Alamuddin Risked Going To Jail In Egypt For The Sake Of Justice!

Looks like George Clooney found himself one of the good ones!

Amal Alamuddin, a London-based barrister, recently talked about a case of hers that nearly landed her in Egyptian jail!

The newlywed was talking to The Guardian about the tense situation in which she was defending three Al Jazeera journalists, Peter Greste, Baher Mohamed, and Mohamed Fahmy, who spoke their minds. She explained:

"When I went to launch the report, first of all they stopped us from doing it in Cairo. They said: 'Does the report criticize the army, the judiciary, or the government?' We said: 'Well, yes.' They said: 'Well then, you're risking arrest.'"

Amal also talked about how in the Egyptian government, they pick which judges and panels will preside over which cases. She explained, "We've seen the results of that in this particular case where you had a handpicked panel led by a judge who is known for dispensing brutal verdicts. And this one was no different."

Her three clients were sentenced to between seven to 10 years back in June. However, a New Year's Day retrial had been approved. Sadly though, Amal doesn't think it will turn out any different:

"If the idea is: well, there were errors and now there's going to be a retrial, but then the retrial operates on the same basis as the original one, that doesn't really mean much… We have to continue and double our efforts to achieve his release in other ways. Unfortunately we have to conclude that we can't rely on these Egyptian court processes to achieve a fair or swift result."

We're hoping for the best for these men, and for Amal! She's got Gorgeous George to look after now!!!

    she didn't "risk" anything as she didn't do anything….including leaving the megansnsion compound in Mexico where she's on yet another vacation. The actual lawyers who did the work are in Egypt working. She's a PR shill mouthpiece for her firm now. She's not ever won a case and she's a junior barrister. Besides, these people she's "defending" support the muslim Brotherhood. Check how they treat women and gays and get back to me about "human rights". Her support of them explains Clooneys silence on the Beverly Hills hotel boycott. They're a joke to people who actually work for a living.

    The Egyptian government is desperately trying to form a new government that was literally weeks away from becoming another ISIS strong hold……and she feels the need to criticize…it would be no different if she criticized a small infant for not being able to care for itself…..they need time….. all the woman I speak to there say they are extremely grateful to Allah for the new government……finally someone is protecting them from being raped on every street corner…and business owners are thanking Allah for this new government that they aren't being robbed three times week or extorted by the extremist…for Gods sake are we suppose to let the world burn around us….her timing and thinking is insane…her scope on this matter isn't based on whats best for Egypt ..its on what SHE thinks is best….and f**k throwing the George Clooney name around… it doesn't mean sh*t when it comes to the safety of Egyptians……
