Prosecution requests summoning of Morsy, Brotherhood leaders in prison break case

Judicial sources have said that the Supreme State Security Prosecution on Tuesday examined complaints accusing ousted President Mohamed Morsy and 34 Muslim Brotherhood leaders of escaping from the Wadi al-Natroun prison during the 25 January revolution, and of spying for foreign elements.

The sources added that prosecutors prepared a 41-page document with evidence against the defendants, which they handed over to Prosecutor General Hisham Barakat in a meeting that lasted five hours.

The prosecution requested the summoning of Morsy and other Brotherhood leaders for interrogation, which sources expected Barakat to respond to in the coming hours.
