Al-Masry Al-Youm reports: Ousted President Mohamed Morsy is not being detained by the army and is being well looked after, according to Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Ali, the official spokesperson for the Armed Forces.
The army has prioritized protecting the ex-president due to the instability witnessed on the Egyptian street, Ali said.
The military spokesperson denied that Morsy was in detention because he was not facing any judicial order to that end.
In an interview with Al Arabiya satellite channel, published on its website on Wednesday, the army spokesperson said that nobody will be excluded from Egypt’s politics in the future. No one would be hunted down for their political opinions, he added.
Ali claimed that the army has no presence in politics because Egypt already has a president and a Cabinet. The army would concentrate on security Egypt and its borders, he said.
