UN rights chief says Morsi decree breaks human rights law

Published: 11.30.12, 16:37 / Israel News

The UN human rights chief has warned Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi that his decree expanding his powers would put him beyond the law and open the door to human rights violations, her spokesman said on Friday.

 

Navi Pillay sent a letter to Morsi on Tuesday, urging him to reconsider last week's decree and warning that, "approving a constitution in these circumstances could be deeply divisive," spokesman Rupert Colville told a UN briefing. (Reuters)
