CAIRO: Shubra Criminal Court headed by Judge Hassan Farid decided Thursday to postpone the trial of 48 Muslim Brotherhood members, including Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie, to March 11.

The court obliged the prosecution to bring witnesses in the trial of blocking Qalyubia road and referred defendant number 42 to medical care.

The judge, held at the Police Institute, heard the defendants’ lawyers, who demanded their release. The court referred one defendant to medical at his request because of his health condition.

Badie denied June 30 was a revolution during the trial, saying that incidents that followed it were void. Mohamed Morsi is the legitimate president of Egypt, he said, chanting against military, Defense Minister Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Attorney General Hisham Barakat. Badie asked to investigate the killing of Brotherhood members including his son who died at Ramsis square in August.
