    Mohammed Morsi, ousted Egyptian president, sentenced to death

    Does he deserve death?

    Mohammed Morsi, ousted Egyptian president, sentenced to death - World - CBC News

    An Egyptian court today sentenced ousted president Mohammed Morsi and more than 100 other people to death over a mass prison break during the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. As is customary in passing capital punishment, Judge Shaaban el-Shami referred his death sentence on Morsi and others to the nation's top Muslim theologian, or mufti, for his non-binding opinion. He set June 2 for the next hearing.

    Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected president, was ousted by the military in July 2013 following days of mass street protests by Egyptians demanding that he be removed because of his divisive policies. Morsi's successor, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, was the military chief at the time and led the ouster. El-Sissi ran for president last year and won the vote in a landslide. Morsi already is serving a 20-year sentence following his conviction on April 21 on charges linked to the killing of protesters outside a Cairo presidential palace in December 2012.

    I am not a fin of military regimes (which the current one in Cairo is) and I also think that dragging your political opponents in court and sentencing them to death en masse is not the best way forward. That being said, the Morsi regime was very bad and worse for Egypt and the whole region than the current regime.

    Morsi was hardly great, and from what it seems, just as interested in being a dictator as el-Sissi. I'll admit I'm unlikely to see el-Sissi as better without heavy doses of evidence though, due to my own heavy bias against el-Sissi because some of his actions. He likely, if not ordered it, supported the killing of hundreds of protesters, is cracking down hard on any dissenting media. Has courts that are trumping up charges, jailing journalists, and so forth.

    Also have issues that people were so critical of the Muslim Brotherhood, yet seem silent when it is being done by el-Sissi. Not like the media isn't reporting on it, but outside of that you barely hear anything about it.
