9:02 am
and those against him in the trial haven't had an opportunity to look at these files yet so they need that time in addition most he hasn't actually had any access to his know if he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in an unknown location today was the first time that we've seen him which was the first time is now is have seen him i learned today speaking to the different noise there are grounds to charge him and the people there on grounds all the entitlement to kill protesters and looking at the evidence is not entirely political although obviously is being carried out in court to politicized way what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when he was equally as charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides also mohamed morsi of course ahmed mostly in the south the whole place erupted into contrasting chunks the missing brotherhood themselves mohamad mostly said they did not really recognize this court they say that illegitimate and that the most he remains the president of egypt meanwhile those who are standing against him the legal teams against him were saying execution execution he must return to jail he was extremely raucous in their
9:03 am
one point a fight broke out between journalists and said who is the lowest of mohamed morsi accused jealous of being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side to basically almost to his shoes as a lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the missing brotherhood kept repeating and mohamed morsi care beating he was alleged to disobey president that this was a fake trial that this was a political trial and that really the just missing needed to prevail in this court case needed to end as you say most he keeps insisting that this is a fake trial which is the reason that he says he will be defending himself. having said that though this some twenty five lawyers that opposite payton for the defense but only ten of them have actually been given access to take clients of course morsi is standing accused of inciting murder alongside. muslim brotherhood supporters this is widely being seen as a political trial of course tensions here running high we'll keep you updated. and you can follow her spawns on twitter for all the latest updates from the

egyptian capital so paul is the year's got all the details from that court hearing . the in the. now the egyptian the twenty love an egyptian revolution saul long time army backed leader hosni mubarak step down followed by year of political turmoil in june two thousand and twelve mohamed morsi became the country's first democratically elected president however as a sport his push for an islamist back constitution sparked deadly unrest in december that same year violence erupted again this summer and morsy protests prompted the military to oust the islamist leader followed by a vicious crackdown on muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a sow's and people were killed but it allows journalists while iskandar believes the trial against the muslim brotherhood's leaders as part of a broader political clampdown on islam mr ideology in egypt. well this is seems
9:05 am
a bit like deja vu for egypt another president another trial in less than three years and what we're seeing is a rerun of a politicized trial of course there are things that president morsi has done just like hosni mubarak has but i don't think that he's on trial for the for the exact crimes that he's done or the reason he's being put on trial is because of the muslim brotherhood ideology and the way he ran the country but the intent of trying him is not really a state of law or a democratic transition or or even or any of this stuff the same time we're seeing a lot of his. ministers that were part of it the interior ministers that served under him who have actually killed protesters they are not being tried along with morsi and so therefore this is seems very very highly politicized in the hands of

9:07 am
actually enter their building and destroy the hard drives now i think a very interesting point that the lesson makes is over the potential violation of freedom of expression now this is the argument we hear the u.k. government use a lot when they're condemning the leaks being published that it's damaging national security in the u.k. and iraq permissible limits to freedom of expression and person freedoms according to national security and there will prescribed in international law our concern is that the u.k. government has simply gone way beyond what those normal prescribed limits are now in the letter it says that the protection of national security can be a legitimate reason for limiting the freedom of expression but and this is the really important point that governments must demonstrate that the expression actually harms the national security not simply enough for them to say that it will now coming up this week we're going see the heads of m i five m i six and t.c.h. key questioned in an open evidence session that's going to be broadcast by
