A new report encouraged the UN to launch an independent investigation into the death of Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president, who was ousted in a 2013 military coup and died this June in the middle of a trial.

The report, published Wednesday and compiled by Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers at the request of Morsi’s family and the Egyptian Revolutionary Council, “looked into the circumstances surrounding the former President’s arrest, trial and subsequent death in custody.”

It pushes for a UN-led independent inquiry into Morsi’s death that “has been further bolstered, on 9 November 2019, by the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, or Arbitrary Summary Execution and the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention calling for an effective independent and impartial investigation into the unlawful death of Dr. Morsi and of all other prisoners who had died in custody since 2012.”

Toby Cadman, a co-founder and head of Guernica 37, said Agnes Callamard, the UN special rapporteur on extra-judicial executions, has been forwarded a copy of the report and he will meet her within the next two weeks to discuss all the steps the UN can take.
