FJP Leaders Demand Halt of Executions
FJP Leaders Demand Halt of Executions
As the murderous military coup regime escalates its vengeful campaign of thinly disguised execution of all opponents, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, the FJP, call for an end to the killing of patriotic citizens.

 Leaders of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) called for a stay of executions against the innocent.

Dr. Mohamed Gamal Heshmat, leading member of the FJP, said: "No to the politically-motivated death sentences".

In a post on the FJP's official Facebook page, Dr. Heshmat added, "Innocent young people are being executed, while corrupt senior officials who ruined the country are being freed", referring to the jailing of January 25 Revolution icons and the acquittal of members of the ousted Mubarak's regime.

Separately, on his Facebook page, Dr. Abdul-Mawgood Dardery, leading member of the FJP, called for a moratorium on executions, noting they are exclusively dealt out to evidently innocent people.

Meanwhile, "Execution of a Homeland" campaign was launched by the Egyptian Coordinating Committee of Rights and Freedoms, last week, to collect a million signatures on a legal petition to be presented to the High Commissioner for Human Rights, in order to stop death sentences against the innocent people of Egypt.

Announcing support for the "Execution of a Homeland" petition campaign, FJP leader Ahmed Rami said the campaign organizers are independent of any political current or faction, and that the foundations of their movement are rooted in asserting a human's inherent right to life, and challenging the clear predominance of politics over the judiciary.

Earlier, Human Rights Watch (HRW) called on Egyptian authorities to release the six detainees facing the death penalty after being convicted by a military court, "accused of belonging to the Egyptian insurgent group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or Partisans of Jerusalem", in a notorious lawsuit known in the media as the "Arab Sharkas Terrorist Cell" case.

In a report published on its official website, HRW said "Defense Minister Sedki Sobhi confirmed all seven death sentences on March 24, 2015 (including a 7th defendant sentenced to death in absentia), following the rejection of a legally required appeal from prosecutors, putting the six men in custody at risk of execution at any time". In all, 9 persons have been convicted in this one case, for the attack on security forces in which one officer was killed back in 2014.
