Egypt launches probe against opposition

2012-12-27 16:05

Cairo - An Egyptian official says the country's top prosecutor has ordered an investigation into accusations against opposition leaders of incitement to overthrow the regime.

The prosecution official said on Thursday a judge will investigate the report filed last month accusing Mohammed El-Baradei, Nobel Prize laureate and former head of the UN nuclear agency, along with Amr Moussa, former foreign minister and Hamdeen Sabahi, a former presidential candidate, of inciting the overthrow of Egypt's first elected president, Mohammed Morsi.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government policies.

The accusations were filed by a lawyer during a political crisis over a series of presidential decrees that granted Morsi and the committee drafting the disputed constitution immunity from judicial oversight. Tensions were fed by deadly clashes between pro- and anti-Morsi demonstrators.

      Sharia law treats woman and non Muslims like dirt as in Iran or Saudi Arabia where authorities notify the guardians when women try to leave the country. Pakistan is another example where a Christian woman was sentenced to death for insulting Islam. If you want to practice Islam- go ahead but don't force it on others.
