Egypt accuses UHCHR of politicising Morsi’s death

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry lamented what it described as the “politicisation” of the death of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

In a statement posted on its Facebook page, the Egyptian ministry said that the spokesman of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) “intentionally aimed to politicise a natural death.”

The ministry claimed that OHCHR is working to undermine the “transparency” of the Egyptian judiciary, as well as to highlight claims that Egypt is not committed to international standards.

Meanwhile, the ministry said that the remarks by the UNHRC spokesman would be taken to the highest political levels in Egypt because of their lack of objectivity and professional transparency.
