The decision came after Tarek Abdel-Razek's lawyer pulled out of the case, saying his client was a "traitor."
The Emergency State Security court postponed the hearing until Monday to allow Razek time to hire a new lawyer.
At the end of December, Razek was arrested and three "spy networks" were found in Syria,
allegedly gathering intelligence for the Mossad.
Razek, a Kung Fu coach, reportedly bribed a senior Syrian security
official "for a huge sum of money" to give him security-related files.
Egypt reportedly shared intelligence with Syria, that led to the arrest.
A Lebanese journalist also claimed that Razek tried to recruit him to work for the Mossad, offering him $200,000.
