Brothers call on Egypt president to deport Al Jazeera journalist

Lawyers for Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste have applied for him to be deported after he was granted a retrial in Egypt.

His brothers Mike and Andrew Greste, who had hoped for his release, called on the Egyptian president Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to use a decree he issued last year that allows him to deport foreigners in prison or on trial.

Australian Greste, along with two other Al Jazeera journalists, was granted a retrial on the grounds of flaws in their trial but denied bail.
