Egypt court sentences hundreds of people to Islam Today on Saturday the court sentenced 75 people to death and 47 people sentenced to life. After the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi in 2013, the court gave the verdict in the trial of violence committed in Cairo.

The BBC has reported that the court has sentenced 700 people to different periods. Human rights organization Amnesty International called this trial 'unfair'. The agency further said that this trial was a violation of the constitution of Egypt.

In 2013 there was a protest in Raba al-Adabiya Square in Cairo. At one stage, protests erupted and violence spread. At that time, more than 100 people were killed by security forces. This year, Egypt's parliament imposed impunity for all military officials from July 2013 to January 2016.

Those who have been convicted on Saturday, have been charged with security related crimes. They have been judged for alleged involvement in violence, killings and illegal protests.

With this trial, many Muslim Brotherhood members and politicians have been sentenced to life imprisonment for banned outfits in Egypt. Among them, the highest leader is Mohammad Badoi.

Various human rights organizations have criticized this mass judgment. Human Rights Watch says that Egypt's security forces killed about 817 people at that time. It falls on the level of crimes against humanity. However, the government said that many protesters were armed and at least 43 members of the police were killed in the violence. Since 2013, the government declared the Muslim Brotherhood as a 'terrorist organization'.
