Osama Morsi, son of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, told a rally of supporters of his father via phone that the deposed leader had “promised” victory and retribution to protesters fallen during the unrest that followed his ouster.
“The coup would end soon, and the right would prevail over wrong, and all the damage inflicted on the steadfast protesters would pay off,” Osama told the rally in the Upper Egyptian province of Minya in a phone call that has been broadcast through loudspeakers.
“My father tells all the steadfast in Egypt’s squares; we would defeat our enemies and bring retribution to our martyrs in the near future,” he said.
The rally came as part of Friday's protests called by the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of pro-Morsi groups, as part of its ongoing campaign against Morsi’s overthrow.
Over the past 113 days, pro-Morsi demonstrators have been staging rallies against the July 3 military overthrow of the democratically-elected president.
Morsi was deposed by Egypt's military establishment three months ago following massive protests against his presidency.Last Mod: 18 Ekim 2013, 21:43
