Amnesty calls Morsi death sentence bid in Egypt ‘a charade’

Amnesty International on Saturday called an Egyptian court's decision to seek the death penalty for ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi "a charade based on null and void procedures" and demanded his release or retrial in a civilian court.

The court sought the death penalty for Morsi and more than 100 supporters of his banned Muslim Brotherhood group in connection with a mass jail break in 2011.
