54 Morsi supporters given life sentences

155 defendants are handed sentences in another mass trial


Al-Mansoura Criminal Court handed life sentences to 54 defendants on Wednesday in a mass trial in which a total of 155 Morsi supporters were found guilty of a variety of charges, ranging from murder, attempted murder, committing acts of violence, rioting, assaulting security forces, and joining a terrorist organisation, according to state television.

The 101 accused who were not given life sentences were handed sentences that ranged between three and seven years. Seventy-six of the defendants did not attend the trial, some for security reasons while others had not been detained.

Security forces dispersed a demonstration in support of the defendants outside the courthouse using tear gas, reported Egyptian state television.
