1st LD: Egypt court suspends Morsi trial over defendants’ chants: State TV

CAIRO, (PNA/Xinhua) –A Cairo court on Monday suspended the trial of Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi after the Muslim Brotherhood defendants in the cage chanted against the army for the “military coup.”

Morsi had arrived in the courthouse in the morning with his private clothes as he refused to wear the uniform of the preventive detention.

Sources inside the courthouse said that the presiding judge asked Morsi to wear the uniform but he refused.

Morsi is accused along with the other 14 top Muslim Brotherhood officials of inciting the violence and the murder of protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012.

It was Morsi’s first public appearance since he was toppled by the military on July 3 in response to nationwide protests against his one-year rule. He has been held at an undisclosed location after his arrest.
