CAIRO, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and other 24 suspects belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood group will face trial over charges of insulting judiciary, official news agency MENA reported Sunday.
Morsi and the Brotherhood members, some of them are lawyers and activists, are accused of disdaining the judicial authority, offending its men with intention to spread hatred, the report added without mentioning the date for the trial.
This is the fourth time for the Islamist leader to be referred to criminal court, as he still stands trial over charges related to inciting violence and murdering against protesters outside the presidential palace in early December 2012.
He will be tried also over jailbreak and espionage charges along other top Islamist leaders who were accused of spying and revealing classified military information of the country to foreign bodies including Hamas and financing terrorism.
