Today's confirmation of the death sentences on former President Mohammed Morsi and five others in Egypt comes as a result of mass trials, related to a jail break in 2011, and is a worrying development. The EU opposes capital punishment under all circumstances.  The death penalty is cruel and does not serve any deterrent purpose. It represents an unacceptable denial of human dignity and integrity. The EU expects these sentences to be revised in the appeals procedure.
