 During his trial Monday in the fabricated case known as the Rabaa Operations Room lawsuit, Mohamed Badie, Muslim Brotherhood Chairman, said the death sentence issued Saturday does not scare him, adding that he only regrets the absence of justice in Egypt.


In his statement to the judge, Badie said: "The death penalty does not scare me. I'm not afraid of spending the rest of my life behind bars. The best form of Jihad is: telling the truth to the face of an unjust ruler.

"I complain to God about the absence of justice... I have been turned from victim to accused under the current military coup regime that killed my son, Ammar, and never investigated the incident or brought to trial those responsible for the crime."

The Muslim Brotherhood leader further denounced another death sentence issued against him in absentia, without any chance for a defense statement, in another case earlier on. He said: "This is utter injustice, especially since the prosecutor brought completely trumped up charges against me and the rest of the defendants".

Earlier, on Saturday, Minya Criminal Court confirmed a sentence for the mass execution of 183 opponents of the coup, including Dr. Mohamed Badie and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders, in another fabricated case for allegedly "storming and torching Odoua police headquarters in the province of Minya, killing one police sergeant" at the time when coup security forces were killing thousands of peaceful protesters in the Rabaa Adaweya anti-coup sit-in (August 2012), although the Brotherhood Chairman Badie was in fact in Cairo, where he was arrested, not at all in Minya.

So far, 1100 coup opponents have been sentenced to death for the supposed murder of that one police sergeant in the Odoua police headquarters.
