The Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales (“BHRC”) releases today, 29th April 2014, a statement expressing concern over the convictions and sentencing of 720 defendants to death by an Egyptian court today. BHRC considers the sentences to conclude a fundamentally flawed trial process which is in breach of international law.
