The trial of Mohamed Morsi and 14 others has been adjourned until Sunday, 13 April to allow for the compiling of more testimonies.

Morsi, his presidential aides and other senior Muslim Brotherhood leaders are accused of inciting the murder and torture of opposition protesters outside the presidential palace in December 2012.

At least ten people were killed in the protests, triggered by a presidential decree that expanded Morsi's powers and put his decisions beyond judicial review.

Morsi, who was removed from power by the army in July 2013 amid nationwide protests against his year-long rule, also faces a number of other charges in separate trials, including espionage and breaking out of prison in the January 2011 uprising.

On Saturday, a Cairo appeals court postponed Morsi's jail break trial to Tuesday and his espionage trial to Wednesday.

Egypt behind bars
Kidnapped President Morsi represents Egypt as whole which has been hijacked by military junta for decades. The military junta enjoys luxuriouss live at expense of 80 million Egyptians. Only a handful approx 1 million Egyptians are enjoying with the military junta while Egyptians are bleeding, sweating and dying for a few pennies a day. Shame on the people who are enjoying seeing doctor Morsi behind bars! The day when de tables will turn will come soon and you guys will be the ones representing a dark page in history which proud Egyptians hopefully will turn soon.
