Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsy has been remanded in custody for 30 more days on charges of jailbreak, relevant murder and spying for the Palestinian Hamas movement.

The investigative judge, Hassan Samir, also ordered the detention of Rifaa el-Tahtawy, Morsy’s chief-of-staff, for 30 days pending investigation into charges of spying for the Palestinian Hamas movement, Xinhua reported citing official news agency MENA on Friday.

Mr. Morsy was ousted by popular-backed military procedures in early July and he has been detained ever since.
