I read this tweet today “Egyptians used to call the trial of Mubarak as the trial of the century , what will they call the trial of Morsi tomorrow !?”
Yes once again in less than four years Egypt an Egyptian president stands a trial. The first is Mubarak and the second is Morsi. Mohamed Morsi will stand a trial along other 14 defendants from his aides , Muslim brotherhood officials and Islamist figures. Some of them are runaways thus they will stand a trial in absentia.
Morsi and other defendants are standing a trial for the incitement to kill the protesters in the Presidential Palace clashes last 5 December 2012. I can not forget that day or the what led to it and what happened afterwards.
The trial supposedly will start at 9 AM . Unfortunately we will not see this trial live as the judge ordered that there would be no cameras or mobile phones in the court room. Nevertheless some sources said that the trial would be recorded by the Egyptian TV and then it would be aired after being edited !! Oh yes edited !! The reason given in the press that Morsi may reveal state’s secrets on air !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its location was changed at the last moment from Tora to Egypt’s favorite place to HAVE TRIALS : The Police academy in New Cairo. Needless to say the Appeal court announced too late after the announcement of ministry of interior that they will block traffic in Tora and Maadi corniche.
Helwan university also announced that it would suspend study in its faculties in campus on Monday. Several schools specifically the private and international schools will suspend study for fear of the Muslim brotherhood protests.
The Muslim brotherhood announced on its official website that there would be protests in solidarity with Morsi against his trial. It is expected as it was announced before.
Let’s be frank no one has started the polarization in Egypt that has reached to its climax now except the Muslim brotherhood and Mohamed Morsi with his ill fated bloody Constitutional declaration.
Morsi is not Salvador Allende nor Nelson Mandela as he is being described by his supporters now , he and his brotherhood did horrifying mistakes thinking that Egypt was another syndicate they won its elections.
