CAIRO: The sixth trial session of ousted President Mohamed Morsi was adjourned Saturday in the case of the presidential palace, and according to prosecutor Ibrahim Saleh the former president was then sent to a high-security prison in a military zone in Alexandria where he will wait until his trial resumes Sunday.
The prosecution’s announcement came during today’s session in response to a request submitted by Morsi’s lawyers that the Interior Ministry disclose his place of imprisonment during investigations.
The prosecution has accused Morsi and leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood of inciting violence and killing peaceful demonstrators during protests at the presidential palace in December 2012.
During today session, the court was scheduled to receive a report issued by the Radio and Television Experts Committee that was formed upon a court order to examine videos related to the crimes committed against the demonstrators at the presidential palace, sources told Youm7.
At the Police Academy where the trial was held, authorities intensely secured and inspected the area, with a number military vehicles and police dogs to detect explosives.
