SHAFAQNA – According to Analdolu News Agency reported that ”  Palestinian faction Hamas on Saturday slammed an Egyptian court verdict that sought capital punishment for a number of group members over charges of breaking out of an Egyptian jail in 2011. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri described as “deplorable” the court’s decision to refer 106 defendants, including two Hamas members, to the grand mufti, Egypt’s top religious authority, to consider possible death sentences against them. “It is a politicized case, and the verdict has tainted the record of the Egyptian judiciary,” Abu Zuhri told Anadolu Agency. He argued that defendants in the case “included martyrs, prisoners and members of the [Palestinian] resistance.”
