Egypt jails 452 Morsi supporters
Cairo - XINHUA

An Egyptian military court sentenced Tuesday 452 defendants from three to 25 years in prison and acquitted 54 others over committing anti-government violence following the ouster of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

According to MENA, The two cases including total 506 defendants dating back to August 2013 when a police station and a governorate office in Beheira province, some 130 km north of the capital Cairo, were stormed by Morsi's furious supporters after security dispersal of pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo and Giza left more than 1,000 killed and thousands more arrested.

The military court in the coastal city of Alexandria sentenced on Tuesday 253 defendants to 25 years in prison, 54 to 15 years, 91 to 10 years, 35 to seven years, 18 to five years and a minor to three years. The 253 sentenced to 25 years have been tried in absentia.

Egypt's newest constitution allows military trial for civilians in crimes related to assaulting military institutions or those under their protection.

Morsi was removed by the military in early July 2013 after mass protests against his one-year rule and his Muslim Brotherhood group was blacklisted as "terrorist."

Also on Tuesday, the Brotherhood's general guide Mohamed Badie, along with some prominent group figures, were referred to criminal court over similar charges.

Morsi, Badie and hundreds of detained and fleeing Brotherhood members and supporters have been handed appealable death sentences over charges varying from violence, murder, jailbreak and belonging to a terrorist group.
