The trial of former Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi, deposed by the army and sentenced to 20 years in jail, was "badly flawed" and appears to have been politically motivated, Human Rights Watch said Sunday.The army ousted Morsi in mid-2013 after mass protests against his rule.Morsi and his co-defendants deny the charges against them and are expected to appeal.Morsi faces charges in four other cases including leaking secrets to Qatar, conspiring with the Palestinian militant group Hamas to destabilise Egypt, and organising a jailbreak during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak.
