Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison

Cairo, Egypt – The former president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, was finally sentenced by an Egyptian court to a 20 year prison term. Morsi was thrown out of office by a revolution, led by angered protestors. He was finally linked to his involvement in the killing of many unarmed protestors, in an attempt to quell the uprising. Now, rather than face the death penalty, he will spend the next 20 years behind bars in an Egyptian prison. He was defiant to leave while in office, but is all but powerless now.

It was back in 2013 when the incidents took place, and Morsi was thrown from office. The Egyptian military stepped in to remove him from office, after only having been elected just one year prior. Mohammed Morsi was the democratic answer to replace the Egyptian royalty who had previously ruled before the Arab Spring that saw the toppling of that former regime. Though Morsi was supposedly elected by a democratic majority in a public election, his affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood was not long appreciated.

While Morsi was in charge of Egypt, he took many liberties with his authority, which included exercising unjust actions against political and social groups he deemed unworthy or competitive to him. He was also a somewhat religious hardliner. He had mentioned his desire to re-draft the Egyptian constitution based on Islamic law, which is one of the major factors that led to the public wanting him taken out of office. When he was originally elected, the public did not back such ideals.

Mohammed Morsi had held out in office for about 1 month during the 2013 uprising that led to his deposition. He claimed that he had the backing and authority granted by the US President Barrack Obama, but his fellow countrymen could care less. He was given many opportunities to peacefully step down from power, but he refused until the last minute. It was his actions that he authorized during that final month that ultimately did him in, and landed him behind bars to await a fair trial. Despite not granting fair trials to those who opposed him while in power, Morsi was convicted of his crimes this week and will spend the next 20 years behind bars in an Egyptian prison.
