Egypt:more than 500 people sentenced to death by the dictatorship with support of the western “democracies”

  Turmoil has deepened since the army overthrew Egypt’s first freely elected president, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, in July. Human rights groups said Monday’s verdict suggested the authorities intended to tighten their squeeze on the opposition.

   The western media tried to sell the coup d’etat as a popular revolution, but the truth is the country has become a militar dictatorship controlled by the army, with no democracy at all. It seems the elected president and the biggest party of the country didn’t follow the western agenda, so now they are all being condemned to death under very different invented charges. The Muslim Brotherhood, declared a terrorist group by the authorities last December, denounced the sentence as “inhuman, a clear violation of all judical regulations and a new crime of the military coup. “This massive sentence, issued in record time during the second hearing of the trial just two days after it began, raises serious doubts about the Egyptian judicial system, according to organizations like Amnesty International. “Egypt’s courts are quick to punish Mohamed Mursi’s supporters but ignore gross human rights violations by the security forces,” Amnesty International said in a statement.

The criminal court at Minya, south of Cairo, submitted its decision to the country’s mufti – Muslim jurists – and to the high religious authority Shauqi Alam for their non-binding comments on the case.
