Egypt’s official state gazette revealed yesterday that a court decision issued last April has ruled to include ousted President Mohamed Morsi for the first time on Egypt’s list of terrorists.
According to judicial sources in Cairo, the gazette had also published the decision of the Cairo Criminal Court to include the Muslim Brotherhood group on the list of terrorist entities, in addition to 35 individuals, including Morsi, on the list for a period of three years.
An Egyptian court had previously sentenced Morsi with a death penalty in the case of breaking out of jail during the 2011 popular uprising. The same ruling had also issued a same sentence against more than 100 members from the Muslim Brotherhood group.
Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president, was ousted by the military in a 2013 coup after serving one year in office.
