Egypt: Morsi Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Insulting Judiciary
Local Editor

An Egyptian court has convicted former President Mohammed Morsi and 18 others over insulting the judiciary, sentencing them to three years in prison.

Morsi

Among defendants in the case are prominent rights activist Alaa Abdel-Fattah and political analyst Amr Hamzawy, both of whom were fined 30,000 Egyptian pounds [$1,688]. Abdel-Fattah is serving a five-year sentence for taking part in an illegal protest in 2013. Hamzawy lives in exile.

Saturday's verdict can be appealed.

The court further ordered him to pay 1 million Egyptian pounds [$56,270] to that judge.

Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected president, was ousted by the military in 2013 following mass protests against his one-year divisive rule. He has since faced trial on a host of charges, including espionage and conspiring with foreign groups.

Egypt has since 2013 cracked down on Islamists, jailing thousands of them as well as secular and liberal activists.
