Egypt`s Sisi `will not interfere in judiciary` after Jazeera trial
Cairo: President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi said on Tuesday Egypt`s authorities "will not interfere in judicial matters" a day after three Al-Jazeera journalists were jailed for between seven and 10 years.
The United States is leading calls for Sisi to pardon the journalists working for the Qatar-based network who were convicted on Monday of aiding the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement and "spreading false news".
A presidency official told AFP Sisi cannot legally pardon the journalists until a final court ruling after an appeal.
