CAIRO: The Cairo Criminal Court adjourned Wednesday the trial of Muslim Brotherhood leaders Mohamed al-Beltagy and Safwat Hegazy over accusations of torturing two police officers in the Rabaa al-Adaweya sit-in to July 21, Youm7 reported.

During the hearing, Beltagy demanded the court issue the verdict in the case without the presence of his defense, who left the court as he objected to placing the defendants inside a glass dock.

Beltagy and Hegazy, along with two doctors from the makeshift hospital of the Rabaa al-Adaweya sit-in, are being tried for kidnapping, forcibly detaining, and torturing two policemen, Mohamed Farouk and Hani Eid.

Beltagy, former president Mohamed Morsi, and 13 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders were standing trial on charges of inciting the killing of protesters outside Ithadeya presidential palace in Dec. 2012.
