Mohammed Morsi to go on trial next month
Cairo: Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will go on trial from November 4 on charges of inciting the murder of opponents during protests against his regime.
Morsi, 62, will stand trial with 14 other members of his Muslim Brotherhood over the killings of at least 10 protesters outside his presidential palace in December 2012, according to state news agency MENA.
The clashes broke out on December 5 between Morsi loyalists and his opponents after he passed a temporary decree placing his decisions above judicial review. Six months later Morsi was ousted by the powerful military.
Morsi`s co-defendants include several of his aides and Muslim Brotherhood party leaders.
Since his July 3 ouster, Morsi has been held by the army in an undisclosed location.
Morsi became Egypt`s first democratically elected president following the ouster of strongman Hosni Mubarak during a mass uprising.
After his ouster authorities launched a crackdown against the Muslim Brotherhood and its members.
The Muslim Brotherhood`s status as a registered non-governmental organisation was officially annulled yesterday as part of the crackdown.
