Algerian opposition parties have condemned the mass death sentences handed out by an Egyptian court to ousted President Mohamed Morsi and over 100 Muslim Brotherhood members

At least 53 lawmakers representing the five opposition parties in Algeria yesterday signed a statement calling on the government to reject "human rights violations" in Egypt in the wake of the mass death sentences handed down to ousted President Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 Muslim Brotherhood leaders, the Anadolu Agency reported.

The five parties; the Movement for Society for Peace, Ennahda, the Movement for National Reform, the Justice and Development Front and the National Building Movement, called on the Egyptian judiciary to be "fair and independent and not to desecrate its reputation by issuing political sentences".

On Saturday, the Cairo Criminal Court sentenced ousted President Mohamed Morsi to death, along with 105 others, including senior Muslim Brotherhood members who were found guilty of planning mass prison-breaks in 2011.

The country's Grand Mufti must give his opinion on the court's decision before the sentences can be carried out.

The sentences can be appealed before higher courts.

Al'Quraan

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Al'Quraan Surah Noor

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious." [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 8 No. 137]
