Court sentences 30 to death in Egypt

Egyptian court recommends death penalty for 31 in prosecutor assassination case Egypt court seeks death penalty for 31 in prosecutor bombing case
Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:28

An Egyptian court on Saturday has sentenced 31 persons to death over killing former public prosecutor in a bomb attack on his auto in 2015, the Egyptian state TV reported.

Barakat was the highest-ranking state official to be killed by militants in a spate of attacks since the 2013 ouster by the military of President Mohammed Morsi, a Brotherhood leader who was Egypt's first freely elected president.

Former public prosecutor Hisham Barakat died of his injuries after a car-bomb attack in Cairo on June 29, 2015.

Cairo regularly accuses Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip and is allied with the Muslim Brotherhood, of supporting attacks in Egypt. The July 22 verdict can be appealed against.

Only half of the defendants are now in custody, with the remaining 15 on the run.


Saturday's sentences were referred to Egypt's grand mufti for a non-binding opinion, as required by Egyptian law.

Egypt faces an Islamist insurgency led by the militant Islamic State group in North Sinai, where hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed.

Other significant events occurred after the trial, when Minister of Interior Magdy Abdel Ghaffar's referred officers securing the session to investigation on 18 April 2017.

Several local and worldwide rights groups have condemned the increasing death sentences in Egypt. Critics claimed that the defendants undergo unfair trials and give testimonies under pressure. In early July 2015, Egypt's public prosecution slapped a gag order, preventing media outlets from reporting updates on the investigation of the case.
