PM Erdoğan says Egypt's judiciary commiting 'murder'

ISTANBUL — Prime Minister Erdoğan has criticized Egypt’s judiciary for a mass death penalty last month, which he hopes is reversed.

“A judicial system that has no conscience or bravery, and that sees its citizens as slaves, is a judicial system that can commit murder any time,” Erdoğan said Friday.

On March 24, 529 individuals were sentenced to death in Egypt on charges related toviolence south of the capital Cairo.

At least 600 more individuals are currently on trial for similar charges.

Egypt’s foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, said the final verdict on the death sentences had yet to be made.
