Tayseer Allouni, who has been detained in Spanish prisons since November 2004 without being charged with any offence meriting all the physical and mental suffering to which he has been subjected.
Allouni is currently suffering, not from the exercise of independent judicial authority, but rather from violations of the principles of an equitable judicial system and a fair trial, without which no democracy can take root.
Allouni by, firstly, releasing him and subsequently, if necessary, requiring him to answer any legitimate charges brought against him, in conformity with the principles of the newly established Spanish democracy for the consolidation of which the Socialists and the Spanish people as a whole have struggled so hard.

Allouni, a Syrian-born Spanish citizen and one of Al- Jazeera's top journalists, was arrested at his summer house in Granada on allegations of links with the First-World's bogeyman, the Al-Qa'eda terrorist network.
According to Al-Jazeera spokesman Jihad Balout, Allouni is being investigated on allegations that include his having carried amounts of money varying between $1,000 to $4,000 from Spain to Syrians living in Chechnya, Turkey and Afghanistan, between 1995 and 1999, and having links with Mohamed Atta, a suspected ringleader of the 9/11 attacks.
Earlier reports quoting court sources in Madrid said Allouni was suspected of relaying secret messages to Al-Qa'eda operatives in Europe and of belonging to the same cell as Imad Eddim Barakat Yarkas, also known as Abu Al-Dahdah, who is being held in Spain on suspicion of playing a role in the 9/11 attacks.

 On The Media-- "INSIDER JOURNALISM"
But Allouni's biggest claim to fame was his exclusive interview with Osama Bin Laden shortly after the 9/11 attacks - biggest, that is, until this week, when he was convicted by a Spanish judge of collaborating with al Qaeda and sentenced to seven years in prison.
The judge seems to have accepted some of the grain of Allouni's defense, which was that as a journalist it was in his interest to get to know members of an underground organization such this al Qaeda cell in Spain.
And Allouni, in wanting to buy his slice of truth and his scoop, he overstepped the mark; that he actually found himself obliged to commit acts himself that broke the law and actually gave material help to this group of terrorists.

The International Federation of Journalists today warned that the seven-year jail term imposed on Al Jazeera television reporter Tayseer Allouni by Spanish judges is a punitive action that could lead to increasing self-censorship in media reporting on security issues and organisations branded as "terrorist".
Allouni, a veteran and respected journalist in the Middle East, was arrested in November 2004 on charges alleging he had links to the Al Qaeda terrorist network.
The IFJ welcomed the decision of Allouni's family to appeal against the verdict, which his employers Al-Jazeera say was based upon flimsy and circumstantial evidence.

We all know that the arrest of Tayseer Allouni comes in the context of Americans pressures on Al- Jazeera in order to force it to divert from its policy which is perceived to be harmful to American hegemony which it tries to exercise on the hearts and minds of millions of viewers.
As we strongly condemn and denounce the Spanish government's yielding to American pressure and arresting Allouni and leave him to languish in jail despite his poor health, which reconsider a violation of basic human rights and the principle of free press which the West has long been paying lip service to.
