Cairo Criminal Court postponed Tuesday the Presidential Palace trial involving former president Mohamed Morsi and 14 others on murder charges to 23 October.

The defendants are charged with inciting the murder of protesters during clashes outside the Itihadeya Palace in December 2012, which left 10 dead.

The trial, which also features defendants including Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and Freedom and Justice Party Chairman Saad Al-Katatni, was postponed to continue hearing the defendants’ defence.

The trial has repeatedly been postponed since January 2014. Morsi is a defendant in three other trials, in which he faces charges of:  escaping from Wadi El-Natrun Prison in 2011; insulting the judiciary; and espionage by working with Islamist groups inside and outside the country to “create chaos” in Egypt. He is yet to receive a verdict in any of these pending cases.

Morsi is also accused in a fourth case, involving espionage, for leaking presidential documents and confidential information regarding national security and defence, and with espionage for Qatar during the period of his presidency. The date for this trial has not been set yet.
