Morsi appears in death row jumpsuit in espionage trial

Former President Mohamed Morsi appeared in an execution red uniform on Sunday during a court trial on charges of espionage.

Anadolu Agency has learned that other defendants chanted slogans describing Morsi as a “hero” when he entered the cage reserved for him in the makeshift courtroom at the national police academy.

On Tuesday, the Cairo Criminal Court sentenced Morsi to death over a mass jailbreak in 2011 during demonstrations that removed then Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

Morsi was also sentenced to life in prison on charges of espionage.
