22 June 2017 :
the Egypt’s Court of Cassation confirmed the death sentence for six university students. The names of the six students are Ahmed Walid, Ibrahim el-Azab, Khalid Askar, Mahmud Wahba, Abdurrahman Attaya and Basim Muhsin. The students were detained in January, 2014. The students, who are being threatened with torture and their families, were put on trial by ordeal. The university students, whose death sentence was confirmed, may be executed at any moment. Human rights institutions are calling on the Sisi regime in Egypt to annul the death sentence of the students. In the judgement process which continued in the aftermath of the coup made in Egypt on July 3, 2013 at al-Sisi’s command, scores of people were imposed with life imprisonment and death sentences. For detail on the process, case no. 16850/2014/Mansoura district felonies: killing of a guard, six people sentenced to death, see http://www.cihrs.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Summary-of-impending-executions.pdf.
