Hundreds of people were gathered Saturday in Paris to protest the death sentence pronounced by Egyptian court against the country’s first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi.
About 300 people participated in the protest held at Place de la Rebublique (Republic Square). Protesters waved Egyptian and Tunisian flags as well as banners saying “Silence Kills”, “Morsi, legitimate President of Egypt”, or “We want Justice”.
After chanting slogans like "Sisi killer" and "Where is Justice/ Media Silent", the protesters called on French President Francois Holland to react to the execution decisions.
On May 16, Morsi and more than 100 Muslim Brotherhood supporters were sentenced to death by a Cairo court in connection with a mass jail break in 2011.
The court referred 122 out 166 defendants, including Morsi to the grand mufti to consider death sentences against them over charges of jailbreak and espionage.Güncelleme Tarihi: 24 Mayıs 2015, 10:40
