    Egypt approves death penalty for drug dealers

    Egypt’s cabinet has approved a draft law that would see drug dealers sentenced to death, Al-Masry Al-Youm has reported.

    The law, which was presented to the cabinet yesterday, was part of a broader bill to combat the spread of narcotics in the country and drugs trafficking.

    The draft amendment states that anyone who “brought or exported synthetic substances with an anaesthetic effect, or harmful to mind, body, or psychological and neurological condition shall be punished by death”, adding that those who possessed drugs for the purpose of trafficking could face life imprisonment and a maximum fine of $28,000.

    It stipulates a further fine of $11,300 for those found possessing drugs for individual usage as well as a prison sentence of at least one year.

    The move comes a week after British tourist Laura Plummer was released early from an Egyptian prison on a presidential pardon, after being convicted on charges of drug trafficking. Sentenced to three years, in October 2017 she brought 290 tramadol painkillers in her luggage, allegedly for her partner who suffers from chronic pain following a car accident.

    Drug addiction remains a serious problem in Egypt, estimated to be at twice global rates, with approximately ten per cent of the country, over nine million people, using narcotics.

    Tramadol is the most popular drug among users, followed by cannabis and heroin. The usage of Tramadol, in particular, has surged since 2010, with many attributing the rise to the difficult economic situation the country is facing and a sense of hopelessness amongst the youth.

    Drugs enter Egypt from South Asia, usually via sea and airports, and are then distributed across the North Africa region and into Europe. Drug trafficking in Egypt is also a core activity of transnational organised crime networks.

    However statistics released last month by the Minister of Social Solidarity Ghada Wali revealed that 116,500 Egyptians had been treated for drug addiction in 2018, a 12 per cent increase on figures from the year before. Some 97 per cent of those seeking treatment were men.

    Wali said that the demand for treatment increased, in particular after a media campaign that was launched last April featuring Liverpool footballer Mohammed Salah. The video went viral on social media in Egypt, exceeding five million views in the first three days of its release.

    The government has also launched an initiative to reduce drug usage among school bus drivers after it was found that all 56 drivers who had been reported for suspected drug use by parents in the first semester of the academic year, failed to pass a drugs test.

    According to Amnesty, since the ousting of democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, Egyptian civil and military courts issued more than 1,400 death sentences, mostly related to incidents of political violence, following grossly unfair trials, with testimonies often obtained through torture.

    Egypt executes nine over 2015 murder of prosecutor Hisham Barakat

    Aljazeera

    Egyptian authorities have executed nine suspected Muslim Brotherhood members convicted of the involvement in the assassination of Egypt's top prosecutor Hisham Barakat.

    The executions, by hanging, were carried out on Wednesday in a Cairo prison.

    In November, Egypt's top appeals court had confirmed the death sentence for the nine people convicted in then-chief prosecutor Barakat's murder in June 2015.

    An interior ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to brief media, told the AP news agency that the families of the men were told to pick up their bodies from a Cairo morgue.

    A total of 15 people have been executed in Egypt since the start of the year.

    Rights group Amnesty International had appealed to the authorities on Tuesday to halt the executions, citing testimony by the defendants that they had been secretly arrested and tortured into confessing.

    "There is no doubt that those involved in deadly attacks must be prosecuted and held accountable for their actions, but executing prisoners or convicting people based on confessions extracted through torture is not justice," said Amnesty's Najia Bounaim.

    "At least six men have already been executed earlier this month after unfair trials. Instead of stepping up executions, the Egyptian authorities should take steps to abolish the death penalty once and for all."
    Last week, Egypt hanged three people convicted of the 2013 murder of senior police officer Nabil Farag.

    The previous week, it hanged three young "political detainees" convicted of the September 2013 murder of the son of a judge, Human Rights Watch reported.

    No one claimed responsibility for the 2015 attack against Barakat, but the authorities pointed the finger at members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood of overthrown President Mohamed Morsi.

    Since Morsi's overthrow by then army chief and now President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in 2013, Egypt has cracked down on Islamists who backed the former.

    Hundreds of Morsi supporters have been sentenced to death, while the former president and top Muslim Brotherhood figures have also faced trial.

    The Muslim Brotherhood was outlawed and branded a "terrorist organisation" in December 2013, just months after Morsi's removal.

    Many of the death sentences have been handed down at mass trials involving hundreds of defendants and lasting just days.

    Ousted Egyptian President Morsi died in court Monday. Morsi should have been hanged in 2017. President Sisi insists on executing members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Egypt executes top militant extradited from Libya

    Reuters

    Top Egyptian militant suspect Hisham al-Ashmawy was executed on Wednesday following his conviction over several high-profile attacks, the country’s military spokesman said.

    Ashmawy, a former Egyptian special forces officer, led the Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, Egypt’s most active militant group, before it pledged allegiance to Islamic State in 2014.

    He then moved with a group of followers to Egypt’s Western Desert, later crossing the border to Libya to join the al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia, according to Egyptian officials.

    He was captured in the east Libyan city of Derna in late 2018 and transferred to Egypt in May 2019.

    Ashmawy was convicted on several charges including plotting a 2014 attack that killed 22 military guards, and the attempted assassination of a former interior minister in 2013.

    Military and civilian courts had sentenced him to death before and after his extradition.

    Egypt’s military spokesman posted a picture of Ashmawy with a thick beard dressed in orange prison overalls on Twitter. “This morning the death penalty was carried out on the terrorist Hisham al-Ashmawy,” he wrote.

    Local media including the state newspaper al-Ahram as well as security sources had said last week that Ashmawy had been executed, though the news websites later took down their reports.

    Egypt executes 7 convicted of killing police officer

    CAIRO (AP) Egypt executed seven people convicted of killing a police officer in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia, after a trial that was marred by serious allegations of torture, an international rights groups said Wednesday.

    The defendants were accused of killing the officer and the attempted killing of another person during a fight in November 2013. A criminal court sentenced them to death, and the countrys highest criminal appeals court upheld the verdict in 2018, Amnesty International said.

    The police officer was shot to death while trying to break up a fight in Ismailia, according to court documents. The accused also allegedly tried to kill a civilian and seized the officers weapon before fleeing.

    London-based Amnesty International condemned the executions as shocking and cruel. It said in a series of tweets that the trial was marred by serious allegations of torture and other grave due process violations.

    Three of the convicted appeared with visible bruises on their faces in a televised confession on Nov. 26, 2013, five days after the police officers killing and before their trial even began in blatant disregard of their right not to incriminate themselves, the group said.

    Amnesty International said it opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception, calling it a cruel and inhuman punishment.

    The state-run newspaper al-Ahram reported that the seven were executed Monday in a Cairo prison.

    The Egyptian Front for Human Rights, a local group, said its tally shows Egypt executed 34 people in the first six months of this year.

    Among them was one of Egypt's most high-profile militant leaders. Hisham el-Ashmawi, a former Egyptian special forces officer, was hanged in March, according to the military, after his conviction for his role in planning dozens of deadly attacks on security forces.

    In June, authorities hanged a Libyan militant convicted of plotting an attack that killed at least 16 police officers in 2017.

    Eight suspected militants were executed in February after their conviction of involvement in attacks on two churches in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and the Nile Delta city of Tanta. At least 44 people were killed in the April 2017 bombings.

    Islamic militants have stepped up attacks since the military ousted an elected Islamist president after big protests against his divisive rule in 2013. An Islamic State affiliate based in the northern Sinai Peninsula has repeatedly targeted security forces and the Christian minority.
