Imad Abdul-Ghafoor, a former aide to Egypt's deposed President Mohammed Morsi, called on Morsi loyalists to continue to protests to defend his democratic legitimacy and demand his reinstatement.
Abdul-Ghafoor said in his address in Cairo's Rab'a al-Adaweya Square they would never accept injustice adding "We will live freely, not as slaves."
He rejected rumors that he had met chief of the military and Defense Minister Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, saying he was informed by some military officials about Morsi but added that he did not trust what he was told.
Morsi detained somewhere no one knew.
Egypt has been in a political turmoil since the army deposed Morsi on July 3 following mass demonstrations against his regime. Morsi is held at an undisclosed location ever since.
Morsi supporters have been organizing demonstrations nationwide to defend his democratic legitimacy and demand his reinstatement since the onset of Egypt crisis.
