Egypt’s Court of Cassation on Tuesday overturned a June 2015 life sentence
against ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in the case of espionage
with the Palestinian group Hamas and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,
ordering a retrial.

The court’s ruling covered a total of 21 defendants who had received varying
sentences in the case in a lower court.

Sixteen of the defendants had received life sentences alongside Morsi,
including Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Mohamed Badei.

The court also overturned death sentences against three Brotherhood leaders:
Essam El-Erian, Mohamed El-Beltagy and Khairat El-Shater.

The panel also overturned a seven-year sentence for Morsi’s Chief of Staff
Mohamed Refae El-Tahtawy.

Last week, the same court overturned a death sentence against Morsi in a
2011 prison break case.
