The dispersal of the Rabaa sit-in killed more than 600 people, according to Egyptian government figures

An Egyptian court upheld a death sentence against 12 accused leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt classifies as a terrorist group. It also reduced the death sentence to 31 others, bringing the death sentence to life in the case known in the media as “the dispersal of the Rabaa sit-in.”

Among the defendants, whose death sentence was upheld, are Abdel Rahman Al-Bar, the Grand Mufti of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed El-Beltagy, and Safwat Hegazy.

This ruling is final and cannot be appealed.

In 2018, the Cairo Criminal Court had sentenced 75 people to death and to life imprisonment (25 years) to 47 others. While it sentenced other defendants to different prison terms, including 10 years in prison for Osama, the son of former President Mohamed Morsi.
