The Cairo Criminal Court is to deliver verdict on the former president Mohamed Morsi’s ‘presidential palace’ trial on 21 April, state-media reported on Thursday.

The ousted president is standing trial along with 14 more Muslim Brotherhood leaders; including Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie.

Morsi is accused of inciting violence amongst protesters, as well as killing and torturing demonstrators outside the presidential palace in December 2012. At least 10 protesters were killed in clashes between anti-Morsi and pro-Morsi demonstrations during the ousted president’s tenure.

Morsi is co-defendant in three more trials. He is accused of escaping Wadi El-Natrun Prison on 28 January 2011, of insulting the judiciary; and of espionage by working with foreign Islamist groups to “create chaos” in Egypt.

He is yet to receive verdict on any of the trials.

He has been in custody since his ouster by the military on 3 July. Until his first appearance in court on 4 November, his place of detention was unknown.
