The son of Egypt’s ousted President Mohamed Morsi visited his father in Torah prison two days after an Egyptian court overturned the death penalty against him.

“I am on my way to visit my father in Torah prison and deliver his blue prison apparel instead of the orange one,” Abdullah Mohammed Morsi said in a Facebook post. The orange prison suit is worn by prisoners on death row.

On Tuesday, the Egyptian Court of Cassation overturned a death sentence against Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood’s General Guide Mohammed Badie and ordered a retrial.

The Criminal Court issued the death sentence against Morsi in June 2015 on charges of “storming prison”.
