Court upholds lifetime sentence against Morsi over spying for Qatar

After a long legal battle, Egypt's Court of Cassation reduced former President Mohamed Morsi's sentence to 25 years in the Qatar spy case.

The Court of Cassation, Egypt's highest appeals court, said the ruling against Morsi is final and can not be appealed, official news agency MENA reported.

This is the second time that Morsi got confirmed sentence.

According to the court order, the defendants committed their alleged crimes between the years 2012 and 2016 in Matrouh, Cairo and Alexandria governorates in Egypt, and outside Egypt also.

An Egyptian court on Saturday condemned to death seven people for membership of the Islamic State group and over the beheading in Libya of 21 Christians, all but one of them from Egypt, judicial officials said.




He was elected in 2012 but overthrown a year later when millions took to the streets to protest against his rule, claiming that he had failed to represent the wider...

Morsi and ten other defendants of the lawsuit were referred to court in September 2014, accused of accumulating classified national security intelligence and delivering it to Qatari intelligence and their news network Al Jazeera, which Egyptian authorities consider to be an extension of Qatar's foreign policy. Hundreds of the group supporters received death and life sentences, mostly over violence, murder and spying charges.

He came to power after Egypt's long-time president Hosni Mubarak was toppled in an uprising in 2011.

On the Brotherhood page, the members commented that the verdicts are "an honor", adding it won't prevent creation of thousands of likewise courageous men.

He added both the country and the Brotherhood group will seek reconciliation, but each is waiting for more concessions.
