Bizarre justice: 4-year-old sent to jail for life for murder committed 2 years ago

A court in western Chairo sentenced a four year old boy to life imprisonment for committing four murders, eight attempting to murder and one vandalising of property and threatening police officers cases.

Ahmed Mansour Karni, the boy was not in court on Tuesday when he was being convicted in absentia of offenses that allegedly occurred two years ago, all before his second birthday.
Ahmed was listed as “wanted” for murder, damaging state property and disturbing peace and order along with 115 defendants who were all handed life sentences at the same time at the court in western Cairo for crimes allegedly committed in early 2014.

His defence attorney, Faisal al-Sayd said that his name was added to the list by mistake but the court did not pass Ahmed’s birth certificate on to the judge to prove he was born in September 2012.

He further added that Ahmed’s birth certificate was presented after state security forces added his name to the list of accused, but then the case was transferred to the military court and the child was sentenced in absentia in an ensuing court hearing, which proves that the judge did not read the case.

Another lawyer said that this proves that there is no justice in Egypt and is ruled by a bunch of lunatics.

Last year, a blind man received a 15-year prison sentence for shooting a police officer.

Since Mohammed Morsi’s elected government was ousted in 2013 Egypt is ruled by by a military dictatorship under President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

Around 40,000 opposition supporters are currently in jail as the government cracks down on dissent.
