Morsi At the Start Of The Trial: Down With The Military Rule!
Journalists who were allowed into the courtroom were not allowed to bring telephones or other communications devices, limiting the flow of information. But news reports quoted eyewitnesses in the courtroom as recounting that Mr. Morsi declared: “This trial is illegitimate,” and said he was Egypt’s lawful president.
The opening of the trial Morsi refused to wear the prison uniform. He also defended himself, rejected the legitimacy of the court and insisted he was the president of Egypt. Morsi said: “I am the legitimate president and he did not like the judiciary to be part of the military coup”.
