Egypt Bars Lebanese Man over Death Sentence Petition
Local Editor

Egypt has barred entry to a Lebanese activist who wanted to deliver a petition against a court's death sentences for 529 alleged rioters, an official with the activist's group said Friday.

Wissam Tarif, a member of the US-based Avaaz human rights organization, was detained at Cairo airport for several hours and put on a flight back to Lebanon, said the group's spokesman Sam Barratt.

A court in southern Egypt sentenced 529 people to death last month for deadly rioting, after a perfunctory trial.

The sentences are likely to be overturned on appeal because the court did not even bother confirming the presence of the defendants at the start of the trial, legal experts say.

Tarif had planned to present the petition that of more than one million signatures gathered online to the mufti, the government's official interpreter of Islamic law.

Egypt courts consult the mufti on death sentences as a formality, before holding a final hearing to confirm the judgment.

Hundreds of alleged Islamists have also been sentenced to prison terms for violence in the wake of the army's ousting of Islamist president Mohammad Mursi in July.

The right ones to die for then...the right ones to do for the rest of my life....and no more issues of
power or control in the wrong verb tense that is no longer used....landing is no brainer for me then.

The best indication of a strong and stable government is one that can accept and tolrrate criticism...
anything wavering from that is judged by human history as combsting peace and prospertyJim

It is wrong to kill. As a custodian of your people it is important that you do everything in your power
to make your country a beaufiful place to live for everyone, no exceptions. Your society,indeed you
personally, will be judged on how you treat even the least of your people.
4 - WE HAVE TO STOP THE the mass death sentence handed down to hundreds of Egyptian citizens in Minya.
Simone Chiari | Italy 23:15 2014-05-15
I am horrified by the mass death sentence handed down to hundreds of Egyptian citizens in Minya. By
all reports these show trials have fallen short of the most basic legal standards. All Egyptians
deserve fair trials and basic rights like free speech and freedom. I ask you to go beyond your initial
condemnation and send a clear message that unless these sentences are retracted and there is a fair
trial, Egypt could face diplomatic and financial sanctions. The military crackdown against the
overthrown Muslim Brotherhood government, as well as activists and journalists, is setting Egypt on a
dangerous path to extremism that could affect us all.

This is inhuman. No one has the right to take lives like this, no government, no nothing. Everyone has
the right to live. What did these people do? What is reason enough to take away a life? A life is
important, it is not something that is crashed like this...Please be an example of humanity, not the
opposite.
8 - Stop cruelty now.

Sure cruelty to the Egyptians in Minya must be stopped. But what about the worst crudity committed
against the indigenous people,Copts of Egypt?
