Egypt’s highest appeals court has upheld a 25-year-jail sentence against the country’s ousted president, Mohamed Morsi, over allegations of spying for Qatar.
The Court of Cassation rejected the former president’s appeal, saying the ruling was final. The court confirmed death sentences against three prominent figures of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood party over similar charges. The defendants were accused of sneaking classified documents about the armed forces to Qatar that harm Egypt’s national security. The documents were allegedly traded with the Qatari intelligence for one million dollars. Morsi was ousted during a military coup in 20-13. Since then, hundreds of activists and supporters of his Muslim Brotherhood movement have been arrested, handed jail terms or executed.
