For his first tweet from freedom on the beach in Nicosia, Peter wrote: “Feels sweet.”

However, as media have been reporting, Peter and his family are still very worried for the fate of his two colleagues. While Fahmy has renounced his dual-Egyptian citizenship in favor of his Canadian citizenship in the hope of a similar deportation proceeding perhaps being applied in his case, Mohamed has no such option, and faces a longer ten-year sentence, as well.
Greste tweeted that he and his brother Mike will soon be on their way home to a precious and long-overdue reunion.
Brother Mike and I due to head home to Australia shortly. Can't wait for the family reunion. Keep shouting #FreeAJStaff— Peter Greste (@PeterGreste) February 3, 2015
