Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s President has stated that embattled Egyptian ex-President Mohamed Morsi who slumped in court, was ‘killed’.
Erdogan who stated that the Egyptian ex-president Morsi was ‘killed’ during a televised speech in Istanbul, had forged close ties with Morsi, the country’s first civilian president and a prominent Muslim Brotherhood member. The ties however deteriorated after the Egyptian military, then led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, ousted Morsi in 2013. Sisi then became president.
“Morsi was struggling on the floor in the courtroom for 20 minutes. Authorities, unfortunately, did not intervene to save him. Morsi was killed, he did not die of natural causes.” He further said he would follow up on the process related to Morsi’s death. “We will do whatever is needed for Egypt to be tried in international courts.”
