alert Egypt sentenced 42 people to death in September: Report
Egypt’s government sentenced 42 people to death in September amid calls for an end to executions ordered after "unfair" trials, a report says.

The London-based al-Araby al-Jadeed newspaper reported on Wednesday that the figure was according to data provided by the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, an independent human rights organization.

The death sentences were related to 13 different cases.

The sentencing papers of 21 other defendants in five cases were referred to the grand mufti, Egypt’s top Muslim religious authority, who reviews all death sentences.

The daily noted that Egyptian rights groups, including El Shehab for Human Rights, have launched a campaign, dubbed “Stop Executions in Egypt,” on the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty, which is observed every year on October 10.

The campaigners say their movement is against “unfair, political rulings against dissidents” as well as trials that are “based on fake evidence, enforced disappearance and torture the defendants said they were subjected to in order to extract confessions from them in crimes they did not commit.”
