The news of the death sentence awarded to former elected President of Egypt Mr. Mohamad Morsi and more than 100 others has been received in Pakistan with considerable concern. Pakistan, therefore, underscores the fact, highlighted by many other countries, that the dispensation of justice must be based on the principles of equity and fairness. This is all the more important when political prisoners especially a former elected President, who was ousted from office, is brought before the court of law.
Pakistan hopes that the Government of Egypt would take steps to meet the requirements of justice under law and would show compassion in case of political prisoners.
