Amal Clooney Slams Conviction of Al-Jazeera Journalists

Amal Alamuddin Clooney is speaking out about the conviction of three Al-Jazeera journalists in Egypt and says that it sends a “dangerous message.”

The 37-year-old human rights lawyer and wife of actor George Clooney represented Canadian Mohammed Fahmy, who was sentenced to prison for not being registered with Egypt’s journalist syndicate while covering the military ousting of Islamic president Mohammed Morsi back in 2013.

“The verdict today sends a very dangerous message in Egypt,” Amal said in a statement after the ruling. “It sends a message that journalists can be locked up for simply doing their job, for telling the truth and reporting the news.”

“And it sends a dangerous message that there are judges in Egypt who will allow their courts to become instruments of political repression and propaganda,” she added.

    Maybe if she spent a little more time working and less time shilling tequila in Ibizia with the 1% after a 3 month holiday in England she’d win a case. Still no wins, plenty of losses, and never led one. She wasn’t the lead on this one just the mouthpiece. She’s an embarrassment to profesaional working women everywhere.

    Amal Alamuddin is using George Clooney to get a name in Hollywood and use George Clooney’s name to win case’s for her law firm. Amal Alamuddin is in lust with George Clooney’s fame and I doubt Amal Alamuddin’s true intention’s with George Clooney. George Clooney need’s to question why Amal Alamuddin is pressuring him-George Clooney into selling all of his real estate. Is Amal Alamuddin still a contractor with Emaar Properties Group-an Arabic Real Estate Company or not? As well, what benefit does Amal Alamudidn get out of George Clooney selling all of his-George Clooney’s real estate? I am sure the prenup detailed that the properties are his-George Clooney’s and not Amal Alamuddin’s.
    Also, is Amal legally married to the man in the picture’s, Xavier LaRoche, because when Amal is not with George Clooney, Amal is with Xavier LaRoche. Latte1″

    I thought you did she was married to an Iranian diplomat and Mia was their kid? Which is it?

  • lurkerette

    1. Alamuddin is not married to Clooney. 2. The reason he is selling some of his assets is because he is going into semi-retirement with Anna.

    She’s window dressing. She can randomly pick one story of injustice out of thousands of them going on in the ME, but she’ll never lift a finger to make public the plight of Christians, Jews, or Yazidis.

    Lefties habitually take the side of Muslim Brotherhood. Why?
    It betrays what the majority of Egyptians want for their future
    and in addition, is inconsistent with the side America should take.

    George Clooney need’s to,walk away from her and put in the press soon, so Amal doesn’t use George Clooney’s good name anymore.

    Amal Alamuddin is and has been in a prearranged relationship with Xavier LaRoche for about 15 year’s. Amal Alamuddin was seen kissing, in an intimate embrace, Xavier LaRoche, in Italy, while George Clooney was at his-George Clooney’s Italian villa with his-George Clooney’s family and friend’s.

    I am not going to say what Amal Alamuddin’s children’s name’s are, but I will say that Amal Alamuddin has several family member’s that have committed illegal activities and those family member’s and Amal Alamuddin’s legal career benefit from George Clooney’s name and celebrity status.

    Amal Alamuddin use’s George Clooney’s name to get her client’s off on charge’s against them or get them lighter sentence’s that is why since they married there is so much publicity about all of her case’s. Mohamed Fahmy is a convicted terrorist and when Amal put’s his case in the press, there is a high likelihood that Mohamed Fahmy might never go to prison, but he is a convicted terrorist who deserve’s to go to prison.

    Amal Alamuddin use’s George Clooney’s name to get terrorist’s off on charges against them or to get them lighter sentence’s. Amal Alamuddin’s recent case, Al Jazeera is also known as Mohammed Fahmy is a known and recently convicted terrorist. Amal Alamuddin play’s Ala Jazeera up as a journalist wrongly accused, when in fact Al Jazeera is very guilty of the recent charge’s against him. Now the world know’s Al Jazeera a.k.a Mohammed Fahmy’s not only a journalist, but a real terrorist. Amal Alamuddin say’s she is a human right’s attorney, but who’s human right’s does Amal Alamuddin look after? The victim or the criminal? With the recent Al Jazeera Journalist/terrorist case Amal Alamuddin showed her true color’s. Amal Alamuddin is hero to the criminal. And, from the above article George Clooney, in all his humor, is onto Amal Alamuddin’s fake human right’s lawyer game. ##

    “Amal Alamuddin use’s George Clooney’s name to get her client’s off on charge’s against them or get them lighter sentence’s, which is why since they married there is so much publicity about all of her case’s.
    Mohamed Fahmy is a convicted terrorist and when Amal put his case in the press, the entire world felt sorry for him; but Mohamed Fahmy a.k.a. Al Jazeera, is now a convicted terrorist that deserve’s to go to prison.
    Yet again Amal defend’s the guilty and former President Nasheed. Amal Alamuddin, is on the side of guilty terrorist & or criminal’s.
    George Clooney is aware that Amal side’s with terrorist’s, but when is George Clooney going to divorce Amal because of her ability to manipulate the truth? When is George Clooney going to get away from Amal Alamuddin’s lies and how Amal hurt’s other’s and get’s away with illegal activities? When is George Clooney going to stop allowing Amal Alamuddin to use his-George Clooney’s name to get terrorist’s off on charges against them? Latte1″
