Egypt's deposed President Mohamed Morsi on Saturday rejected the right of a court to try him and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders on charges related to a mass jail break in 2011, security and judicial sources said.

Morsi and his comrades, including the Brotherhood's top leader Mohamed Badie, are charged with killing and kidnapping policemen, attacking police facilities and breaking out of jail during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak.

"As far as I'm concerned, these procedures are void and I don't accept them," Morsi said, describing himself as the president of the republic and calling on the Egyptian people to continue their "peaceful revolution," according to the sources.
