The Egyptian Court of Cassation issued a final death sentence against 12 prominent opposition leaders in the Rabaa Dispersal case, two months before the eighth anniversary of the August 14, 2013 massacre.
The sentences were issued after a politicized trial that lacked minimum standards of justice, during which the defendants were subjected to various types of human rights and legal violations, like the unfair trials of the Egyptian judiciary under the current regime of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
The death sentence for those detainees who survived the massacre is a new crime added to the mass killing perpetrated by the Egyptian army and police against more than a thousand Egyptian citizens on that day.
In this regard, Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK invites you to attend a virtual seminar entitled “Stop Executions in Egypt”, with the participation of a number of human rights defenders, journalists, international lawyers, and parliamentarians to discuss the unjust decision issued by the Egyptian Court of Cassation and to discuss possible solutions to stop the implementation of death sentences in Egypt.
