Morsi Trial a Travesty of Justice; says Senior Egyptian Brotherhood Figure

The trial of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was a travesty of justice controlled by the government, a senior figure from the Muslim Brotherhood said Tuesday, after Morsi was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

“His trial has been a travesty of justice, which has been scripted and controlled by the government and entirely unsupported by evidence,” Amr Darrag, a former minister under Morsi, said in a statement in Istanbul.

“They want to pass a life sentence for democracy in Egypt.”
