Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi ‘unwell’ after arriving at civil prison
Tuesday 05 November 2013
Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi spent his first night in a civilian penitentiary in a hospital room after he complained he wasn’t feeling well, senior security officials have said.
The Interior Ministry denied that the 62-year-old, who until the first day of trial on Monday had been held in a secret military facility, was ill. But it said in a statement on Egypt’s state news agency that Morsi was undergoing medical check-ups, and will be transferred to his regular cell later.
Following his dramatic court appearance on Monday, Morsi was transferred to a maximum security prison in a remote desert area near Alexandria, Egypt’s second city. It was his first appearance after he was ousted in a military coup in July.
