Another Example of Reversal by Egypt's Court of Cassation of Mass Convictions of Morsi Supporters

On appeal, the convictions were reversed of 77 defendants convicted following violence that broke out during a pro-Morsi protest in Alexandria, Egypt, that left 12 people dead and 180 others injured. The defendants were charged with thuggery, rioting, murder, attempted murder, demonstration of force, possession of weapons, blocking roads, sabotaging public and private properties, and other offenses.

This continues a fairly consistent pattern of reversals of mass convictions on appeal.
