Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's ousted and imprisoned president, hinted on Saturday that he had been subject to a poisoning attempt by prison officials in a report in Middle East Monitor.
During court proceedings, Morsi - democratically elected in mid-2012 only to be ousted by the army one year later - said, somewhat cryptically, that he had "refused to eat food [provided by prison officials], which, had I eaten it, a crime would have occurred".
Morsi went on to cite five recent "incidents" he had experienced in prison, which, he asserted, "would have constituted a crime" had they succeeded.
He did not elaborate further.
