TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Cairo Appeal Court adjourned on Tuesday the appeal of former president Mohamed Mursi and 130 other defendants in the jailbreak case to November 15.
The case includes several prominent leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood.
The prosecution reportedly recommended that the court accept the appeal filed by Mursi’s defence team and the other defendants; however, the recommendation is advisory and not obligatory, Daily News Egypt reported.
In June 2015, Mursi and the other defendants received death and prison sentences for escaping Wadi Al-Natrun prison on January 28, 2011 during the January 25 Revolution.
Mursi is a co-defendant in three other cases, including the “Qatar espionage” case and Itihadiya Palace case.
Mursi was the first democratically-elected president after January 25 Revolution.
