Deposed Egyptian President, Mohammed Morsi will be facing fresh charges bordering on inciting violence as the state prosecutor on Monday ordered that he should be detained for 15 days.
The former President had earlier been detained and questioned over links with the Hamas Group and his escape from prison in 2011. He was detained for 15 days after the expiration of which another 15 days were added.
Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood commenced a protest after Mosri’s overthrow. The Egyptian interim government swooped on protesters last week and destroyed the camps erected by the pro-Morsi protesters. Hundreds of lives were lost in the violence that ensued.
Meanwhile, reports from Egypt indicate that disgraced former President, Hosni Mubarak who is standing trial might be released in a matter of days.
