UN rapporteurs condemn execution of Coptic Christian in Egypt

Fonte UN

Wael Saad Tawdros Mikhil belonged to the religious minority and was tried and sentenced to death on April 22, 2019 after being accused of killing an abbot in a monastery; human rights experts say Tawdros was forced to confess to the crime; this year alone, Egypt has already executed 50 people.

A group of human rights rapporteurs* condemned the execution of the Coptic Christian in Egypt, Wael Saad Tawdros Mikhil, on 9 May.

He was also known as Father Isaiah, but after being accused of murder, he was excluded the church.

Monastery

According to the group, he was forced to confess to the murder of an abbot in a monastery in the Arab country.

Tawdros was allegedly arbitrarily arrested after the crime. He was sentenced and sentenced to death on April 22, 2019. A year later, on July 1, 2020, the sentence was upheld by the Court.

In a letter to the Egyptian authorities, the UN rapporteurs expressed serious concerns about allegations of torture and ill-treatment of the priest and his co-accused.

He was arrested and without communications for 27 days, suffered mistreatment and was forced to reconstruct the crime.

The group of human rights experts says it is particularly concerned about the apparent violation of legal procedures and the abandonment of international safeguard standards required in death penalty cases.

Prohibition

The experts strongly condemned the actions of the Egyptian authorities especially after a direct appeal to the government was not responded to.

Reporters say the execution was carried out in secret, which in itself is a serious violation of personal dignity and violates the prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading forms or punishment.

Experts are concerned with the apparent violation of legal procedures and with the abandonment of international safeguard standards

They also expressed alarm at the time of the execution, which took place in the Muslim fasting month, and after the Coptic Church Easter celebration and without any notice to the prisoner's family.

This year alone, Egypt has already executed 50 people. In April there were 17, in March: 30, six were killed in February and one person in January.

Exception

The rapporteurs recall that the death penalty for states that still practice it should be reserved for the most serious crimes and can only be imposed in the event of an extreme exception.

And given the way in which capital punishment has been applied in Egypt, it does not appear that these requirements are being followed or that the country is willing to abolish the practice.

The group ended the statement by asking the authorities to end the systematic use of the death penalty against members of religious minorities and to declare a moratorium on current executions so that each case can be reviewed.
