The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) recorded 154 deaths during the tenure of former president Mohamed Morsi, which ended 3 July 2013, according to a statement released on Sunday morning.
The network condemned Morsi for the increase in deaths following protests against his constitutional declaration on 21 November, characterised by clashes between Morsi’s supporters and opponents.
ANHRI accused Morsi of lying about killing protesters during the presidential palace clashes on December 2012, and abetment to murder.
The group likened Morsi to his processor Hosni Mubarak, whom the group holds responsible for 841 deaths during the first round of the revolution. ANHRI also accused the armed forces of the death of 215 citizens after Mubarak’s ouster.
The network announced that it would hold a press conference on Tuesday 12 pm distribute its third book called “Light in the trail of freedom; martyrs under the ruling of the first convicted civilian president.”
They stated that book will be published to support the “revolutionary martyrs,” and describe the location and circumstances of their deaths.
