The Cairo Court of Appeal has set December 9 as the date for the start of the trial of Muslim Brotherhood supreme leader Mohamed Badie and others on charges of inciting violence, a judicial official told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.

They face charges related to acts of violence that hit the Giza province following the violent dispersal of sit-ins staged by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in August, explained Medhat Idriss.

The case involved beside Badie senior Brotherhood leaders Mohamed al-Beltagi, Essam al-Erian and Bassem Ouda, the former minister of supply.

A day later, former Muslim Brotherhood supreme leader Mahdi Akef will appear before court over accusations of "insulting the judiciary."

Several judges have accused Akef, 85, of accusing them of corruption.

Akef was transported to the Maadi Military Hospital in September after his health deteriorated in prison.
