Morsi to go on trial on November 4 for murder

The trial of Egypt`s deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi will start on November 4, the official MENA news agency reported Wednesday.

Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood members were charged with “inciting the killing and torture of protesters” outside his presidential palace in December 2012.

Morsi, who is detained by the military in a secret location since his overthrow on July 3, will stand trial with 14 other defendants who have been jailed since then or are on the run.

About 10 people were killed on December 5 in clashes between Morsi’s loyalists and his opponents after he passed a temporary decree placing his decisions above judicial review.

Morsy, who is backed by the Brotherhood, will be tried at Egypt`s Criminal Court, and since his ouster Egypt has been in turmoil.

In September, an Egyptian court banned all activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and froze its finances.
