The court sentenced former Egyptian President Mursi to three years in prison for insulting judges

An Egyptian court sentenced former President Mohammed Morsi and 19 others to three years in prison for insulting the judiciary. On it informs BBC Arabic.

It is noted that they were convicted of insulting judges through the publication of them on the television, radio and social networks.

In addition, Morsi is obliged to pay 1 million pounds compensation ($1.1 million) to the judge, which he 26 Jun 2013, occupying the post of President of Egypt, called «about a judge who sits in your chair.»

The convicts can appeal the verdict.

In 2013, Morsi was removed from power by the Egyptian military headed by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is now the head of state.

After coming to power, al-Sisi began to struggle with Morsi and his support of the Islamist organization «Muslim Brothers» (in some States it is recognized as a terrorist). Since the beginning of 2014 not less than 1212 people were sentenced to death, including the head of the «Muslim brotherhood» Mohammed Badi.

In 2015, the Mursi were sentenced to death in the case of a mass escape from prison and assault on police during the 2011 revolution.

In June 2016 Morsi also received a life sentence on charges of espionage in favor of Qatar. In Egypt, a life sentence imposed by Mursi, is equivalent to 25 years in prison. In other cases the ex-President has already received the same period.

November 15, 2016, the court of appeal overturned the death sentence for Morsi in the case of escape from prison in 2011.
