Court resumes ‘espionage’ trial

Giza Criminal Court resumed on Tuesday the trial known to the media as the "espionage case", in which former President Mohamed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood figures are involved.
The court has inspeced the contents of the hard drive of one of the suspects, Ahmed Ismail Thabet, containing audio files of religious prayers and songs.
Morsi now stands trial in a total of five cases, facing an array of charges including other espionage charges, inciting to kill protesters outside the presidential palace during his tenure, insulting the judiciary and escaping prison during the January 2011 uprising.
