Judicial sources have said that the Supreme State Security Prosecution on Tuesday examined complaints accusing ousted President Mohamed Morsi and 34 Muslim Brotherhood leaders of escaping from the Wadi al-Natroun prison during the 25 January revolution, and of spying for foreign elements.
The sources added that prosecutors prepared a 41-page document with evidence against the defendants, which they handed over to Prosecutor General Hisham Barakat in a meeting that lasted five hours.
The prosecution requested the summoning of Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders for interrogation, which sources expected Barakat to respond to in the coming hours.
