Former President, Mohamed Morsi, was referred by General Prosecution to Criminal Court for trial regarding the Presidential Palace clashes, according to a statement issued by the Prosecutor General’s office on Sunday.

Morsi was referred along with his bureau manager, Ahmed Abdel Atty; assistant to the former president Ayman Abdel Raouf; former Deputy Chief of Staff Asaad El Sheikha, Freedom and Justice Vice President Essam El Erian, prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed El Beltagy; prominent Brotherhood supporter Wagdi Ghoneim; Brotherhood Activists Abdel Rahman Ezz, Ahmed El Mogheer and Alaa Hamza; Salafi leader Gamal Saber and four others, according to the Prosecution statement.

The Presidential Palace clashes on 5 December 2012 occurred after supporters of the then-president destroyed tents of opposition groups, who were protesting Morsi’s controversial constitutional decree. The violence left five dead, including journalist El Hosseiny Abu Deif, and 693 injuried.
