New Report Launch
CALL FOR AN UN-LED INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEATH OF FORMER EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI
On 17 June 2019, Egypt’s first democratically-elected president Dr Mohammed Morsi died, in a cage, in a Cairo Court. Guernica 37 International, instructed by the family of Dr Morsi and the Egyptian Revolutionary Council, has conducted a detailed investigation into the circumstances surrounding the former President’s arrest, trial and subsequent death in custody. It calls for an UN-led independent inquiry into Dr Morsi’s death and this has been further bolstered, on 9 November 2019, by the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, or Arbitrary Summary Execution and the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention calling for an effective independent and impartial investigation into the unlawful death of Dr Morsi and of all other prisoners who had died in custody since 2012.
