Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi on Sunday called on the people of Egypt to continue their protests against the junta government which he described as ally of the Zionist regime of Israel.
Morsi sent his greetings to the Egyptian people saying: "My greetings to the entire people. I would like to say to you continue your peaceful demonstrations. I am with you. We shall prevail despite the conspirators who are allied with the Zionists." This is what the Middle News Agency reported.
Morsi was permitted to make a statement during his trial from within the detention cage inside the court, which is presided over by Judge Sha'ban Al-Shami, the head of Cairo criminal court - which is looking into the case of the storming of Wadi Al-Natroon Prison.
The trial, one of three that are under way against Morsi, is part of a relentless government crackdown targeting him and his Muslim Brotherhood movement since his ouster by the army in July.
He said: "Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi, who presides over the military coup d'etat that took place in the country will be called to account before God and will also be tried before the entire people who will show in mercy to him. He will be punished several for what he did to the country. He mobiles the military, the army, inside the country without permission from the supreme commander of the armed forces. This is considered an abhorrent crime committed against this people."
