Press Release Regarding Mass Death Penalty And Life-term Sentences Issues In Egypt , 12.04.2015

No: 108, 12 April 2015

We condemn the 14 death and 37 life-term mass sentences that constitute the latest instance of sentencing following politically motivated trials conducted in Egypt since July 2013.

It is obvious that like the previous examples, these condemnations reached following legal proceedings that are far from meeting international standards, will not contribute to lasting social peace and stability in Egypt.
