British Arab Network Chairman interviewed about Morsi death sentence on Al Jazeera’s Inside Story20 Jun 2015, by In the Media in
Dr. Wafik Moustafa, Chairman of the British Arab Network, was interviewed about deposed president Morsi’s death sentence on Al Jazeera’s Inside Story programme
A court in Egypt has upheld the death sentence against deposed president Mohamed Morsi who was sworn in as Egypt’s first elected civilian president in June 2012.
A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi promised a government working for all Egyptians and a change from the days of Hosni Mubarak.
But Morsi – with five other defendants – has now been sentenced to death by hanging on charges relating to a mass jail break during the 2011 revolution.
So how will the sentencing be received within Egypt and around the world? And will it do more than make Morsi a martyr?
