(TASS) Cairo’s criminal court has submitted for consideration by the Grand Mufti the documents sentencing 31 people to capital punishment over the murder of the country’s Prosecutor-General Hisham Barakat two years ago, local TV channels reported.

Under Egypt’s laws, before the death penalty is announced it should be approved by the Mufti.

The final verdict will be declared on July 22. The decisions on 36 other defendants will be also announced.

All of them are accused of plotting and staging the killing of the country’s top prosecutor and illegal storage of firearms, ammunition and explosives.

Hisham Barakat was killed in summer 2015 when his car was blown up.

Seems a bit exaggerating, actually, death penalty is useless… and w*f any cleric messes with the rule of the law. Egypt is already too much plagued by this sectarianism that has been forced on the country near about 1350 years ago by the invaders. A mufti shall never challenge Anubis in his own land.
