After the Al Jazeera report was published, Misr called it a “witch hunt” and accused the media of “creating an atmosphere of fear”.
Misr also called on journalists to “act with an absolute commitment to investigate and bring to justice those responsible for the disappearance”.
A day after the report was released, a group of journalists, activists and journalists from the UK and US were detained in Egypt.
The journalists were charged with “espionage and aiding and abetting terrorism” in relation to the Al-Jazeera article.
The investigation led to the arrests of at least 14 members of Al-Arabiya TV, which Misr owns.
The group was accused of broadcasting propaganda for an armed group called the “Army of God” and supporting “terrorists”.
Al Jazeera has apologised for publishing the Al Jazeera article and has said it is cooperating with Egyptian authorities.
The US and UK government also issued statements of condemnation over the arrest.
The UK said it had given the Egyptian authorities until 30 September to release all those arrested and released from custody. “
These journalists have been targeted for their work and we are calling on them to free themselves immediately and unconditionally.”
The UK said it had given the Egyptian authorities until 30 September to release all those arrested and released from custody.
The arrest of journalists has caused deep divisions in the Arab world.
In Bahrain, which is home to the US embassy, some officials have called on the US to end its support for the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is accused of cracking down on dissent.
The UAE has also criticised the US for supporting the Sisi regime, but has expressed concern over the possible impact on diplomatic relations.
The Al Jazeera story, which has been widely criticised, came just days after the release of a leaked US State Department cable.
In it, the US State department accused the Bahraini authorities of failing to protect journalists in the country, including by failing to detain journalists who reported on human rights abuses.
