Issued: 16 May 2015

The shocking judgement regarding President Mohamed Morsi of The Republic of Egypt has stunned the world. On the 16th May 2015, a death sentence was confirmed as being handed down by a defunct Egyptian judiciary for the democratically elected President. This travesty of justice is in keeping with the line of preposterous judgements being handed down by the politically motivated judiciary such as the case of the Spiritual Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, Mohamed Soltan and Gehad El-Haddad. Sad is the day that the World witnesses the death sentence for the democratic choices of the people. Despite the concocted charges, the true nature of the verdict is evident.  This being the legalisation of political assassination with the arm of the judiciary acting as “legaliser” of such grotesque acts.

The Media Review Network South Africa is appalled by this miscarriage of Justice and the betrayal of democratic values. We call on all countries guided by the principle of Justice to decry these flawed verdicts and isolate the Republic of Egypt for these abominable actions. We further condemn those countries that have turned a blind eye to the Egyptian violations of prisoner rights, democratic values and the bedrock of justice. A tyrannical regime installed via a military coup d’état should not and cannot be tolerated in the modern world.
