CAIRO: The Cairo Criminal court adjourned Saturday the trial of Egypt’s former President Mohammad Morsi and other 24 codefendants over insulting Egypt’s Judiciary to Feb. 18, Youm7 reported.

Morsi, alongside 24 other prominent Brotherhood and Islamist figures faces charges of “disrespecting the Egyptian court system and rulings” via comments made on social media and in interviews with the press.

The adjournment came in response to requests made by the defense team to assign a technical expert from the Egyptian Radio and Television Union to inspect the video recordings included in the case’s evidence.

Former Supreme Guide of the group Mahdi Akef, Chairman of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party Saad al Katatny, leading figure Mohamed Al-Beltagy are among others standing the trial.
