'Epic Negligence': Freed Journalist Mohamed Fahmy Sues Al Jazeera for $100M

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Mohamed Fahmy, the Al Jazeera journalist who spent more than a year in prison in Egypt, is suing the network for $100 million for negligence and other damages.

Fahmy, a Canadian citizen who formerly served as Al Jazeera's Cairo bureau chief, announced at a press conference Monday in Cairo that he would "set the record straight and put Al Jazeera on trial in Canada's top court."

The lawsuit may be a pre-established condition for his release meant to rid fascists of pesky Al Jazeera by holding him hostage to some contrived punishment or enormous bribe.
