Trumped Up Cases Brought Against Egypt's Legitimate President Mohamed Morsi
Trumped Up Cases Brought Against Egypt's Legitimate President Mohamed Morsi
Brief details of 7 fabricated lawsuits the military junta regime in Egypt has brought against Mohamed Morsi, the first civilian to be democratically elected President.
Saturday, May 16,2015 09:15
On the third of July 2013, Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi led a military coup against the legitimate elected President Mohamed Morsi. Then, he abducted and forcibly detained him in Abu Qir naval base in Alexandria.

By instructions from the military regime, the public prosecutor filed many false charges (in 7 separate fabricated lawsuits) against the President in retaliation for the brief democratic experience in Egypt after the January 25, 2011 Revolution.

Lawsuit 1: Itehadia Presidential Palace Clashes

In April 21, 2015, an Egyptian criminal court sentenced President Mohamed Morsi to 20 years in prison for an absurd "show of force" crime, acquitting him and co-defendants of all charges of murder and possession of arms.

Lawsuit 2: Escape from Wadi Natrun Prison

In this case, the public prosecutor has accused President Morsi of conspiring with Hamas and Hezbollah to cause chaos in Egypt in order to topple the regime, in addition to the false charge of escaping from prison, during the January 25, 2011 Revolution. The verdict in this case is scheduled for a May 16 session. This lawsuit also includes among the defendants 71 Palestinians. It transpired that 2 of those were dead at the time of the supposed crime, and another was in an Israeli prison for many years including the crime date.

Lawsuit 3: Communicating with Hamas and Iran

In this lawsuit, the President faces a charge of collaborating with Hamas to carry out terrorist acts in Egypt and to commit crimes against army soldiers and officers. Prosecutors also accused him of collaborating with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and leaking reports from the National Security Authority that contained secrets affecting the country's security, during his presidency. The verdict in this case is also scheduled for a May 16 session.

Lawsuit 4: Communicating with Qatar

In this lawsuit, the public prosecutor has accused President Morsi of collaborating with the State of Qatar against Egypt, during his tenure as President of the Republic. This case is still pending before the courts.

Lawsuit 5: Sidi Gaber Clashes

In this lawsuit, the public prosecutor has accused President Morsi of inciting violence, in Sidi Gaber (Alexandria) clashes that took place on July 5, 2013, following the July 3, 2013 military coup, in spite of his forced disappearance during that period at a military base, under control of the military junta.

Lawsuit 6: Insulting the judiciary

On January 19, 2015, the public prosecutor referred President Morsi to trial on charges of insulting the Egyptian judiciary in his speech during the period of his presidency. A May 23 hearing is to consider this case.

Lawsuit 7: Planning and mobilization for Rabaa protest sit-in

In this lawsuit, the public prosecutor has accused President Morsi of planning, managing, implementing and using the Rabaa protest camp in carrying out acts of violence, terrorism and murder within the country, despite his forced disappearance during that period at a military base under army control.

Evidently, accusations against the President in all these lawsuits are trumped-up charges based on flawed and false statements without a shred of real evidence. The lawsuits have been rejected completely by President Mohamed Morsi, who stressed they were malicious and false, adding that the court has no jurisdiction to consider these cases, since he is the President of the Republic – and as such, constitutionally, he may not be tried before those courts.

International organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, described the trials as terminally flawed and politically motivated. They also described them as "an affront to justice".

God save Egypt, its proud people and legitimate President from all evil
