An Egyptian court adjourned until October 26 the verdict on trial of Egypt's former vice-president Mohamed ElBaradei on charges of 'breaching faith'.

A lawyer has accused ElBaradei betraying trust by resigning following the violent dispersal of two support camps for ousted president Mohamed Morsi on August 14.

The lawyer argues that ElBaradei was selected to be a vice-president following Morsi's July 3 ouster as a representatives of the revolutionary groups, considering his resignation as "a betrayal of confidence".

ElBaradei's resignation had been met with anger from his allies at the National Salvation Front (NSF), with NSF members saying that they hoped ElBaradei would have consulted them on the resignation.

Tamarod movement, which spearheaded protests that led to Morsi's overthrow, said ElBaradei had escaped a "historical" responsibility.
