Deposed president’s son says banned from visiting father in prison



Osama Morsy, son of deposed President Mohamed Morsy, said on Tuesday that armed forces troops prevented him from visiting his father at Borg al-Arab Prison without clarifying legal reasons.
 
“We went as family on the legal time to visit the abducted president. However, the prison administration prevented us without legal reason,” Osama told Freedom and Justice website.
 
Osama said he headed to the prison accompanied by his younger brother Abdullah.
 
On Facebook, Osama said, “Military troops prevented me from visiting the president without showing legal evidence. The kidnapped president’s steadfastness continues.”
 
Morsy was taken to Borg al-Arab prison in Alexandria after his trial over murder in 2012 clashes outside his presidential palace.
