Judge Sentences 4-Year-Old to Life in Prison

A 4-year-old boy was accidentally sentenced to life in prison for murder and a slew of other charges in Cairo.

"On the eve of injustice and madness in Egypt, a four-year-old child was sentenced to life imprisonment. He is accused of disturbance, damage to property and murder,” an Egyptian lawyer Mohammed Abu Huraira said, according to the Jerusalem Post.

“The Egyptian scales of justice are not reversible. There is no justice in Egypt. No reason. Logic committed suicide a while ago. Egypt went crazy. Egypt is ruled by a bunch of lunatics."

The child, Ahmed Mansour Karni, was wanted for murder, disturbing the peace and damaging state property along with 115 other defendants who were also convicted to life in prison. He was convicted in absentia for the offenses the reportedly occurred two years ago when he was 2-years-old.

They accused the then 2-year-old child of four counts of murder eight counts of attempted murder and vandalizing property of the Egyptian Health Administration while threatening soldiers- and police and vandalizing their cars.

"The child Ahmed Mansour Karni'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," said the defense attorney.

"This proves that the judge did not read the case," he added.

Some said the conviction of the group is an example of Egypt’s attempt to silence dissenters, according to the Washington Post.
