Egypt to prosecute Morsi over new charges

Egypt’s ousted president Mohammed Morsi along with 25 defendants will face trial on charges of “insulting the judiciary”, a judicial source told Reuters on Sunday.

The defendants include secular politicians, including former Ministers of Parliament Mostafa Al-Naggar and Amr Hamzawy.

Morsi stands trial on a number of other charges, including incitement to violence. He is scheduled to appear in court on January 28 in a case related to jailbreaks during the 2011 revolution.
