Former President Mohamed Morsi and his top aides are going to stand trial at the Police Academy in Cairo’s fifth settlement neighborhood in New Cairo, a judicial source said on Wednesday, requesting anonymity.

Cairo Court of Appeals has yet to set the date for starting the trial’s sessions, the source said, adding that the defendants face charges of inciting violence against anti-Morsi protesters at the Ithadeya presidential palace in December of last year.

The General Assembly of the court is reportedly holding a meeting on Saturday. The meeting is expected to decide on the dates and circuits before which prominent defendants of the Muslim Brotherhood would stand trial.

Since the July 3 ouster of Morsi, several leaders of the group have been arrested and referred to trial on charges ranging including espionage and inciting the killing of protesters.
