Cairo Criminal Court، chaired by Judge Mohamed Shareen، resumes on Sunday the re-trial of former president Mohamed Morsi and 27 other defendants in the case known in media as “storming prisons”.
The re-trail of the defendants in this case comes after the Court of Cassation annulled in November 2016 the death sentences issued by the Criminal Court against Morsi، Mohamed Badi، the former supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood group and others.
The case dates back to 2011 during the 25 Revolution when Wadi El-Natrun prison where Morsi was a prisoner، was stormed on 29 January.
Morsi is still being tried in several other cases، some related to espionage and conspiring with foreign groups.
Late in December، Mohamed Morsi has been sentenced to three years in prison and fined 2m Egyptian pounds (£83،000) after being found guilty of insulting the judiciary.
The former president، who led the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group، is already serving a life sentence after being found guilty of spying for Qatar. He was also given a 20-year sentence over the killing of protesters in December 2012.
