Ousted Egypt President Mohamed Morsi will die in prison if violations against him continue, a Swiss based human rights group has warned in a new report.

Morsi has been subjected to systemtic violations which amount to crimes against humanity, the Organization for Protection of Human Rights said in a publication entitled “Dr. Mohamed Morsi … I am threatened”.

According to the report, the violations against Morsi include medical negligence which directly threatens his life as well as not allowing him to meet with his relatives or lawyer.

The organisation noted that it has monitored the violations suffered by Morsi since the coup on 3 July 2013.

The report described the charges against him as “political”, adding that it is “as if the main goal is for the man to die in his prison”.
