Egypt’s ousted President Mohamed Morsi was all-but-disappeared by the military during their July coup d’etat, but appeared in court this week to face a litany of charges. He may or may not be aware of the details, however, as he was in a sound-proof cage for the duration of the hearing.
Morsi’s charges include “escaping from prison” during his brief, illegal detention in the middle of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, and “collaborating” with Hamas. Analysts say the charges of involvement with Hamas are mostly implausible, since the people he is accused of meeting were either dead or in Israeli prisons at the time.
