Egypt is probing reports that deposed President Mohamed Morsi allegedly provided national security-related documents to Qatar. State news agency MENA reported on Wednesday that Egypt has opened an investigation into reports that Morsi handed over to Qatar “documents relevant to national security.” Morsi is accused of providing the documents via the Doha-based Al-Jazeera TV during his presidency. Egypt has already charged three Al-Jazeera journalists with supporting the Muslim Brotherhood movement, with which Morsi is affiliated and which was declared a “terrorist organization” by the interim government last December. The journalists are also charged with fabricating footage to harm Egypt’s security. Back in March, Egypt’s Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim also accused Morsi’s secretary Amin El-Serafi of leaking documents regarding the army, its armaments and the deployment of its troops, to a chief editor of Al-Jazeera. Morsi is already facing the death penalty for several charges. He was toppled in a military coup led by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Egypt’s current president and then army commander, in July, 2013. Sisi is accused of leading the suppression of anti-government protesters and Muslim Brotherhood supporters as hundreds of them have been killed in clashes with Egyptian security forces. Rights groups say the army’s crackdown on the supporters of Morsi has left over 1,400 people dead and over 15,000 others arrested. Some 200 people have also been sentenced to death in mass trials. International bodies and rights groups have already denounced the rulings as a grotesque example of the shortcomings of Egypt’s justice system. The UN Human Rights Council has also repeatedly expressed concern over the Egyptian security forces’ heavy-handed crackdown and the killing of peaceful anti-government protesters.
