Morsy transferred to single cell



Assistant Interior Minister Ahmed Helmy said that the prison sector has transferred toppled President Mohamed Morsy to a solitary cell in Borg al-Arab Prison after his 10-day quarantine ended, in accordance with the prison regulations.
 
Helmy ruled out any discriminatory treatment against Morsy, adding the same regulations applied to all prisoners.
 
A security source told Al-Masry Al-Youm that transferring a prisoner to a solitary confinement was a procedure followed in some cases to protect the prisoner's life.
 
North Cairo Criminal Court headed by Judge Ahmed Sabry Youssef adjourned the trial of Morsy and 14 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders to 8 January over charges of inciting the killing of protesters outside Ettihadeya Palace in December 2012.
