Ibrahim Eissa wins Gebran Tueni Award

Al Dostour editor Ibrahim Eissa has won the Gerbran Tueni award, a prize given by the World Association of Newspapers that honours an editor or publisher in the Arab region.

Eissa spent much of the last year locked in legal battles after he was given a custodial sentence when his newspaper reported on rumours of Egyptian president Mubarak’s ill health. He was pardoned in October.
