File - Mohamed Morsi
CAIRO – 7 February 2018: Cairo Criminal Court adjourned the case of toppled president Mohamed Morsi and 23 other defendants accused of spying for Hamas, to February 28.
The judge listened to several recordings issued by the prosecution on Wednesday morning which prove relations between Morsi and other defendants involved in the case for communicating with Hamas and other foreign organizations.
Further evidence was presented to the court as part of the investigations that accuses Morsi, and 23 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders with conducting communications with foreign organizations, governments, risking the country’s security and stability. The investigations proved that the toppled president was spying against the country and cooperating with terrorist organizations to destabilize the country.
Morsi’s communication with foreign organizations including Hamas, were considered hostile to the country’s safety.
The former president affiliated with the legally-labeled-terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, is accused by the State Security Prosecution with arming the group through illegal ways including smuggling. It was stated in the investigations that Morsi and his group were constantly communicating with the Lebanese-Hezbollah militia and Hamas.
The defendants in the case are also accused of planning violent attacks within the country, serving some of the MB’s international organization purposes. The evidences also proved that the accused were in contact with terrorist and armed groups in Sinai.
Since the Prosecution ordered the investigation of Morsi for spying, the case became known as ‘the biggest spying case in Egypt’s history’.
Article 77 B of Egypt’s panel code says that, ”whoever seeks or communicates with a foreign country, or with one of those working in its interest, to carry out hostile deeds against Egypt shall be punished with a sentence of death.”
