UN calls for ‘transparent investigation’ into ex-Egyptian President Morsi’s death


UNITED NATIONS, Jun 18 (APP):The United Nations human rights office Tuesday called for a “prompt, impartial, thorough and transparent investigation” into the death of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.
Morsi, 67, who was Egypt’s first democratically elected president, died after he collapsed during a court appearance on Monday. He had been in jail since his ouster by the military in 2013.
His family have long raised concerns over his treatment in prison and say that the authorities refused a request for him to be buried in his home town.
