An Egyptian court overturned Wednesday the conviction of a policeman accused of killing protesters in Cairo during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak, drawing charges of judicial double standards.The ruling comes as the military-installed authorities have been waging a deadly crackdown on supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohammad Morsi, put on trial many Islamist leaders, including Morsi himself, and arrested thousands of Islamists.Since Morsi's ouster, authorities have been waging a deadly crackdown on his supporters that has left more than 1,400 people dead according to Amnesty international.
