10:02 am
access to his know if he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in a new location today was the first time that we've seen him it was the first time his lawyers have seen him i learned today speaking to the different noise there are grounds to charge him and the people there on grounds of incitement to kill protesters and looking at the evidence it's not entirely political all the obvious means being carried out in quite a politicized way what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when he was equally as charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides of mohamed morsi and of course ahmed mostly in the south the whole place erupted into contrasting chants the missing brotherhood themselves in hamad most he said they do not want to recognize this court they say that illegitimate and that the most he remains the president of egypt meanwhile those who are standing against him the legal teams against him were saying execution execution he must return to jail is extremely wrong because in their one point a fight broke out between journalists and see who is the lawyer of mohamed morsy
10:03 am
accused of genocide being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side and basically almost threw his shoes at a lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the missing brother had kept repeating and mohamed morsi care repeating that he was a loser this about president that this was a fake trial that this was a political trial and the really the just missing needed to prevail in this case needed to and as you say most he keeps insisting that this is a fake trial which is the reason that he says he will be defending himself. having said that though this some twenty five lawyers that opposite pay to for the defense but only ten of them have actually been given access to take clients of course morsi is standing accused of inciting murder alongside. muslim brotherhood supporters this is widely being seen as a political trial of course tensions here running high we'll keep you updated. and you can fall upon twitter for all the latest updates from the egyptian capital and she's got all the details from that court hearing. the end.
10:04 am
of the twenty eleven gyptian revolution so a long time army backed leader hosni mubarak step down fall by a year of political turmoil in june two thousand and twelve mohamed morsi became the country's first democratically elected president however his push for an islamist back caza to sion sparked deadly unrest in december that same year violence erupted again this summer and morsy protests prompted the military to oust the islamist leader followed by a vicious crackdown on muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a thousand people were killed over the allison journalist while iskandar believes the trial against the muslim brotherhood's leaders is part of a broader political clampdown on islamist ideology in ages. well this is seems a bit like deja vu for egypt another president another trial in less than three
10:05 am
years and what we're seeing is a rerun of a politicized trial of course there are things that president morsi has done just like hosni mubarak has but i don't think that he's on trial. for the for the exact crimes that he's done or the reason he's being put on trial is because of is muslim brotherhood ideology and the way he ran the country but the intent of trying him is not really to state of law or a democratic transition or or you or any of this stuff the same time we're seeing a lot of his. ministers that were part of it the interior ministers that served under him rabbi actually killed protesters they are not being tried along with morsi and so therefore this is seems very very highly politicized and the man of the people who want to see a lot of the muslim brotherhood behind bars seventy human rights organizations from around the globe are sounding the alarm over the erosion of freedom in britain and
10:06 am
they are free and open letter to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response just surveillance leaks are you sarah first as more on the air peel. well some very strong words for the prime minister there from those human rights organizations and they're fighting back against what they call the eroding a fundamental rights in the now let's take a look over some of the main points that that letter raises and their concerns center around the use of terrorism legislation against david miranda when he was detained at heathrow airport they also talk about the sustained pressure against media organizations reporting the edward snowden leaks the guardian newspapers come . to mind back they had government officials actually enter their building and destroy the hard drives now i think a very interesting point that the lesson makes is over the potential violation of
10:07 am
freedom of expression now this is the argument we hear the u.k. government use a lot when they're condemning the leaks being published that it's damaging national security in the u.k. and iraq permissible limits to freedom of expression and person freedoms according to national security and there will prescribed in international law our concern is that the government has simply gone way beyond what those normal prescribed limits are now in the letter it says that the protection of national security can be a legitimate reason for limiting the freedom of expression but and this is the really important point that governments must demonstrate that the expression actually harms the national security not simply enough for them to say that it will now coming up this week we're going to see the heads of m i five m i six and. questioned in an open evidence session that's going to be broadcast by a public satellite leg so this debate certainly not going away however much you can imagine u.k.
