CAIRO, August 19. (Itar-Tass) Arrest of overthrown Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, who was later taken into custody in relation to a number of charges, has been extended for 15 days. Local media outlets report he is being charged with another count of incitement of violence.
August 15 Mohammed Morsi’s arrest has been previously extended to 30 days. He was initially detained July 26 for 15 days pending investigation into his potentially illegal activities. According to reports of Egyptian media, he is being accused of espionage and treason, prison breaks during mass anti-government protests in 2011 as well as conspiring with the Palestinian Hamas group MENA news agency reports that he was already questioned with regards to some of these accusations.
Violence is currently sweeping the country, with Islamist militants and the military not giving in to the demands of the other side.
Meanwhile, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said on Monday that Egypt will move forward in compliance with a roadmap, which was approved earlier and which envisions elections in the beginning of 2014.
“Egypt’s priority is to ensure national security,” Fahmy said, adding that Egypt “faces the crisis, but the country follows the right way. I believe in the future.”
