Morsy trial over killing protesters postponed to Thursday

Cairo Criminal Court postponed on Wednesday the trial of ousted President Mohamed Morsy and 14 others over inciting murder of protesters outside Ettehadiya Palace in December 2012 to Thursday.
The court heard testimonies of six prosecution witnesses. A gag order was earlier issued for security reasons.
Security sources close to the court panel told Al-Masry Al-Youm, “On Thursday the court will conclude hearing testimonies of prosecution witnesses. Gag order will be lifted, in case  the witnesses attended and court concluded the hearing.”
Morsy, along with other 14 persons (including seven fugitives) face charges of inciting murder of three opponents of Morsy and injuring others on 5 December 2012 outside Ettihadiya Palace.
