Mahmoud and Khaled Lotfy

2019 IPA Prix Voltaire laureate, Khaled Lotfy, completed his five-year prison sentence and returned home on 19 November.

Kristenn Einarsson, Chair of the IPA’s Freedom to Publish Committee said: It is so unfair, what Khaled has had to endure. We wish him all the best as he is re-united with his family and looks to the future. We hope that the Egyptian government can build on positive announcements and improve the freedom of expression situation through clear legislative changes that ensure people are not imprisoned for what they write or publish.
