Court upholds lifetime sentence against Morsi over spying for Qatar
An Egyptian court has upheld a life sentence imposed on ouster Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, his lawyer confirmed today.
According to the court order, the defendants committed their alleged crimes between the years 2012 and 2016 in Matrouh, Cairo and Alexandria governorates in Egypt, and outside Egypt also.
But it upheld a life sentence - 25 years in prison in Egypt - on the charge of leading an illegal organisation, his lawyer Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsud told AFP.
Morsi served as Egypt's first democratically-elected president after the fall of former dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
The court also upheld death sentences for documentary producer Ahmed Ali Abdo, EgyptAir cabin crew member Mohamed Adel Kilani and university teaching assistant Ahmed Ismail Thabet, as well as a life term and 15 years for two others, the official said.
He has been sentenced separately to 20 years in prison over deadly clashes between protesters and security forces outside his palace in December 2012.
