Egypt’s Interior Ministry says it will no longer allow visits to the country’s ousted president, now held in a remote desert prison.
Ministry spokesman Col. Gamal Mokhtar said Friday that Mohammed Morsi had delivered four messages “inciting violence” against the interim government during a first meeting with his lawyers on Nov. 13.
Morsi made a statement through his lawyers saying Egypt will see no stability unless he returns to power. He was overthrown by the military on July 3 after millions demonstrated calling on him to leave office.
One of Morsi’s sons, Osama, posted on his official Facebook page on Thursday that his most recent request to visit his father was turned down. He says Morsi was moved from his place of detention to another undisclosed location.
