CAIRO - 13 December 2017: Cairo Criminal Court, headed by Judge Mohamed Fahmy, started the retrial of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi at the Institute of Police Secretaries on Wednesday.
The prosecution submitted a memorandum to the court on December 10, 2017, under the supervision of the head of the prison medical services sector. It included the confirmation of the court’s decision to form a medical committee to carry out a medical examination on Mohamed Morsi.
The committee consisted of the Forensic Medicine Department and 10 doctors specializing in various medical fields.
According to the committee's report, Morsi is suffering from the deteriorating condition of his left eye caused by diabetes but he refused to give a blood sample to know the effects of diabetes on his kidneys.
The committee recommended in its report that a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, as well as a panoramic dental X-ray should be carried out for Morsi.
In November 2016, the Court of Cassation annulled death and life sentences for Mohamed Morsi and 18 others, and the imprisonment of seven years for the defendants Mohamed Refaa Tahtawi, and Asaad Sheikha for conspiring with Hamas and instead ordered a retrial.
The Cairo Criminal Court issued a death sentence in the case against Morsi, MB supreme leader Mohamad Badie and other key figures of the terrorist group, in June 2015.
