Egypt Court Sentences 528 Muslim Brotherhood Members to Death

Muslim Brotherhood - Bella Naija

An Egyptian court has sentenced 528 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to death.

These members were convicted of charges including attacks on people and property and murdering a policeman. This group of 528 is among over 1,200 supporters of  Islamist ex-president, Mohammed Morsi on trial, including senior members  of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Those convicted are expected to appeal. The verdict will be passed on to the Grand Mufti (a senior Islamic scholar), Egypt’s supreme religious authority, for approval or rejection. The final trial session will be conducted on 28 April.

Ever since Mr Morsi was ousted by the military last July, Egyptian authorities have cracked down fiercely on Islamists. Multitudes have been arrested and killed.

    It IS terrible. The hope I have is that since it’s going to appeal, and especially since they’re a religion-friendly organization appealing to a religious organization, that it will be ok in the end. You know what drives me nuts? That people think the military is going to do something positive for Egypt, even though they came in through a coup, overthrowing the MB which was voted in in spite of its flaws. It’s like, ask Nigeria first how “lovely” military rule can be.
    Poor Egypt.
