The former Egyptian president who had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, died Monday in court after his trial over espionage charges.
“[Former President Mohamed] Morsi was affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is an outlawed group in Egypt,” according to Egypt Today. “He became president in 2012, and was ousted over mass protests on July 3, 2013. Since then, he was being prosecuted in custody as he was facing several charges, including espionage, killing protesters, prison escape, and judiciary insult.”
In 2015, Morsi was sentenced to death for a jailbreak plot, but that sentence was overturned a year later, and he was given three years in prison for “judiciary insult.” The same year, he was sentenced to life in prison on espionage charges, with the court claiming that he was spying on behalf of Qatar.
Initial reports said that Morsi, who was granted a chance to speak to the judge in his trial, spoke for 25 minutes before fainting. He reportedly had a heart attack, and was transported to a local hospital, where he died. He was 67.
From 2000 to 2005, Morsi served on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau.
“Morsi was chosen as the Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate in April 2012 after the movement’s deputy general guide,” according to BBC.

UPDATE: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Moved to ICU, Condition ‘Worsening’ After Coronavirus Diagnosis
Johnson was put in the ICU on Monday.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to the intensive care unit after being hospitalized following his diagnosis with COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus.
Johnson was brought to St Thomas’ Hospital on Sunday night merely “as a precaution” because his coronavirus symptoms were not clearing up. Johnson’s administration initially tried to downplay his illness to keep the public from being alarmed.
“Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus,” a spokesman said.
However, Johnson’s health is quickly deteriorating, and the government has been forced to admit the seriousness of the Prime Minister’s medical situation.
“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital,” the spokesman said.
“The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication,” they added.
Johnson addressed the British people on his Twitter account earlier today, indicating that he is still on the job regardless of his worsening condition.
“Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went into hospital for some routine tests as I’m still experiencing coronavirus symptoms. I’m in good spirits and keeping in touch with my team, as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe,” Johnson wrote in a tweet.
Politicians from all sides of the aisle are wishing Johnson the best as he fights for his life in the ICU while afflicted with the oft-deadly coronavirus.
“Terribly sad news. All the country’s thoughts are with the Prime Minister and his family during this incredibly difficult time,” new Labour leader Keir Starmer wrote in a tweet.
Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote in a tweet: “My thoughts are with the PM and his family – sending him every good wish.”
“My thoughts tonight are with @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds. I know he’ll be getting the best care possible and will come out of this even stronger,” tweeted Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
“Praying for the Prime Minister’s swift recovery tonight,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan wrote in a tweet.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor Johnson’s condition and provide updates as his health improves or worsens.
