Senior Brotherhood figure says Morsi trial ‘nail in coffin’ of democracy

A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood said the trial of Egypt’s former president Mohamed Morsi, sentenced to 25 years in prison on Tuesday, had “fallen below all international standards”.

“This verdict is a nail in the coffin of democracy in Egypt,” Yahya Hamid, a former minister in Mursi’s cabinet and head of international relations for the Brotherhood, told a news conference in Istanbul.
