Cairo criminal court resumes on Sunday، the re-trial of former president Mohamed Morsi and 27 other defendants in the case known publicly “storming prisons”.
The re-trail of the defendants in this case comes after The Court of Cassation annulled last November 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 is rooted in the 2011 escape of more than 20،000 inmates from Egyptian prisons — including Morsi and other Brotherhood members، during the early days of the 18-day uprising against ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
Morsi was ousted following mass protests against his one-year rule. Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood was classified as a terrorist organization.
