Mohamed Morsi (1951-2019), PhD, was an Egyptian politician and engineer who served as the 5th President of Egypt, from 30 June 2012 to 3 July 2013.
An Islamist affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood organisation, he led the Freedom and Justice Party from 2011 to 2012. In June 2013, protests calling for Morsi's resignation erupted. The military, backed by the political opposition and leading religious figures, stepped in and deposed Morsi in a coup. Pro-Morsi demonstrations were crushed, resulting in over 800 deaths. Egyptian prosecutors then charged Morsi with various crimes and sought the death penalty, a move denounced by Amnesty International as "a charade based on null and void procedures". His death sentence was overturned in November 2016 and a re-trial ordered. Morsi died during trial on 17 June 2019.
