Cairo criminal court decided on Thursday to adjourn the re-trial of former president Mohamed Morsi and 21 other defendants on charges of conspiring with Hamas to August 9.

The defendants are charged with collaboration with foreign organizations outside the country، uncovering national security secrets and coordinating with armed groups inside and outside Egypt to launch terrorist attacks inside Egypt.


The prosecution charged the defendants with conspiring with the political bureau of Hamas، the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Lebanese Hezbollah against the state to spread chaos across the nation.

In June 2015، the Cairo Criminal Court issued a death sentence in the case against Morsi، MB leader Mohamad Badie and other key figures of the terrorist group. 

In November 2016، the Court of Cassation annulled the sentences and ordered a retrial of the defendants.
