    Egypt sentences to death 529 supporters of Mohamed Morsi

    A judge in southern Egypt has taken just two court sessions to sentence to death 529 supporters of Mohamed Morsi for the murder of a single police officer.
    Sixteen people were acquitted after lawyers said they had not been allowed to present a proper defence before the judgment was made.
    The defendants were arrested last August during a wave of unrest in which supporters of the former president react violently to the clearance of a pro-Morsi sit-in in Cairoduring which more than 900 people were killed. In addition to the murder, the 529 were accused of attempting to kill two other police officers and attacking a police station.

    The report I got was for multiple attacks.....it wasn't over the killing of one Police officer. It was for killing hundreds of people, and attacking the Police, also going after the Military. From looting to stealing government Property and Inciting riots. While I don't agree how they are not following judicial processes. Which that is all they really need to do.....this group is one of the major problems throughout the entire ME. Egypt is their main base and where their orders are passed out thru their Sunni Clerics. They get rid of the problem here.....then all their off shoots will begin to fail in the other ME Countries.....which will also put notice on any others. Anywhere else in the world. To run for cover. Is there reason to allow any of them to go back out into the world and then continue on pushing the sectarian divide and trying to use Democracy to take over other ME countries. Stirring up violence and lets not forget their treatment of women and others outside themselves.



    Egypt sentences 529 Morsi supporters to death


    The 545 defendants in the case were charged with murder, attempted murder and stealing government weapons in connection with an attack on a police station in August in the town of Matay in Minya province. One police officer was killed in the attack. The violence was part of rioting around the country sparked when security forces stormed two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo, killing hundreds of people on Aug. 14.

    A security official in the courtroom said the defendants and the lawyers disrupted the proceedings by chanting against the judge: "God is our only refuge!" He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

    On Tuesday, another mass trial against Morsi's supporters opens in a Minya court with 683 suspects facing similar charges. The defendants in that case include Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie, who also faces multiple other trials, and senior members of the group from Minya province.

    Since then, Morsi's Brotherhood and other Islamist supporters have staged near-daily demonstrations that usually descend into violent street confrontations with security forces.

    The military-backed government has arrested some 16,000 people in the ensuing crackdown, including most of the Brotherhood leadership.

    At the same time, militant bombings, suicide attacks and other assaults — mostly by an al-Qaida-inspired group — have increased, targeting police and military forces in retaliation for the crackdown. The authorities have blamed the Brotherhood for the violence, branding it a terrorist organization and confiscating its assets. The group has denied any links to the attacks and has denounced the violence.....snip~

    It was a mass trial where 529 people were sentenced to death for the same murder. The defense was not allowed to present a case. Yes, they got it wrong. Picture 529 Christians in the United States given this sentence for the death of one police officer and then ask yourself the question again.

    Read above.....it wasn't just for Killing one police Officer. It was for attacking all the police in one region and that town. Moreover much of the country is glad to see the MB gets its come-uppance. Especially women.

    You read the above. Because you did it badly.

    with an attack on a police station in August in the town of Matay in Minya province. One police officer was killed in the attack. The violence was part of rioting around the country sparked when security forces stormed two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo, killing hundreds of people on Aug. 14.
    The security forces killed hundreds of people. If the FBI killed hundreds of Tea Partiers you'd be rioting too, I expect. Morsi supporters rioted. Yes, they attacked a police station, killing one police officer. But the trial lasted five minutes and the defense was not allowed to present a case. How much do you want to bet some of those people never so much as threw a punch? I don't care if "much of the country" is glad to see the MB get hanged. There's no way this is something remotely resembling a fair trial.

    Rights apply to everyone or they aren't rights. If these guys are so obviously guilty, convict them in a fair trial and be done with it.

    I already stated I didn't care for how they played the Judicial Process.....but you surely can't read where it says they attacked other police. Also they attacked Coptic Christians and Burned downed churches all the while denying they, the MB did it.

    The 545 defendants in the case were charged with murder, attempted murder and stealing government weapons in connection with an attack on a police station in August in the town of Matay in Minya province. One police officer was killed in the attack.

    Then there was Ben's OP.

    Also, the Military responded due to Coptic Christians being beaten.....their Churches being Burned. All for the Pro Morsi support by the MB. They even attacked a military convoy. We even have some of the events up in the ME and Egypt/Africa. As to what the Morsi Supporters were doing and when the Egyptian military responded.

    Yes, at least in some, or perhaps most of the cases. Being in the Islamic Brotherhood does not always equate to "terrorist" - though sometimes it cleary did. The Islamic Brotherhood was invited to participate in the elections (which they fairly won) as the "Islamic Brotherhood". Now, what 529 have been sentenced to death for financially supporting what was a legal political party that fairly won elections?

    Of course, very few of these people, if any will actually be executed (and the Egyptian military government knows it). Rather, the threat of execution, however remote, will be used to intimidate them, to extort cash from them etc.
