Egypt: Mursi espionage trial adjourned and media ban imposed

Text size Aa Aa

Mohamed Mursi and other senior Muslim Brotherhood leaders have appeared in court in Cairo.

But an ongoing espionage trial in which the ousted Egyptian President is accused of conspiring with foreign groups to commit ‘terrorist acts’ was adjourned until April 28 and a media ban imposed.

Mursi is being tried on a number of different charges.

The Muslim Brotherhood was Egypt’s best organised political party until last year but the government has accused it of turning to violence since Mursi was overthrown.

The movement says it is committed to peacefully resisting what it views as a military coup.
