Freeing Peter

Shand Taylor Lawyers recently hosted Juris and Lois Greste, who presented John Sneddon with a copy of their book “Freeing Peter”.  The book tells the story of the Greste family’s fight to free Juris and Lois’ son, Peter Greste following his arrest and imprisonment in Egypt.  Peter was an Al Jazeera journalist who was arrested in Cairo in December 2013 when reporting on riots which were sweeping across the country. 

John Sneddon, a partner in our dispute resolution team, was a member of the team of lawyers, media professionals and family representatives which worked to free Peter and secure his return to Australia.

The book, which is published by Penguin Books Australia was co-written by the entire Greste family with contributions from Peter and his brothers Michael and Andrew.
