German Chancellor Angela Merkel Wednesday welcomed Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, whose controversial Berlin visit was met by human rights protests but crowned by a multibillion-euro energy deal.Sisi, Egypt's former army chief, ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi in July 2013 and launched a deadly crackdown against his Muslim Brotherhood supporters as well as secular activists.Sisi insisted Egypt's justice system was independent and fair, and that many of the death sentences including Morsi's were still subject to judicial review.It belongs to the people and not to any leader, starting from Mubarak, and until Sisi".The Egyptian leader during his two-day visit also met President Joachim Gauck, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
