AUS­TRALIAN jour­nal­ist Peter Greste must wait to learn if he will be con­victed by an Egyp­tian court af­ter a re­trial on ter­ror­ism- re­lated charges was de­layed. A Cairo court was due to hand down its ver­dict on Mr Greste and two of his Al Jazeera col­leagues last night, Aus­tralian time, but the de­ci­sion has been put back. In a tweet yesterday, Mr Greste said: “So it seems con­firmed. Dutch am­bas­sador says # AJre­trial ver­dict of­fi­cially de­layed un­til Au­gust 8. We wait once more.” Mr Greste was de­ported from Egypt to Aus­tralia in Fe­bru­ary.
