Egypt court postpones Mursi death sentence ruling

An Egyptian court postponed on Tuesday issuing a final ruling over a death sentence recommendation for former Islamist President Mohamed Mursi and other top Muslim Brotherhood leaders in a case related to a 2011 mass jail break.

The judge said the case was postponed to June 16.

The court last month sought the death penalty for Mursi after he and his fellow defendants, including top Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie, were convicted for killing and kidnapping policemen, attacking police facilities and breaking out of jail during the uprising against then-president Hosni Mubarak.

The ruling was referred at the time to Egypt's top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for a non-binding opinion.

Judge Shaaban el-Shami said the court received the mufti's opinion on Tuesday morning and needed time to discuss it.

The court also postponed to June 16 issuing a final ruling in a separate case for Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater and 15 others for conspiring with foreign militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah against Egypt.
