The international team defending imprisoned former President Mohamed Mursi has filed formal complaints against the Egyptian government to the International Criminal Court, the state-owned Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported.
The complaints are against what the team called the illegal arrests of Muslim Brotherhood members.
The team defending Mursi in trial will hold a press conference on Monday in London to answer reporters' questions on the actions they are taking in response to Mursi's ouster.
This team was appointed by the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party.
Egypt's army deposed the Brotherhood's Mursi last July following mass protests against him. Mursi is currently on trial on charges of killing protesters and espionage.
Security forces have been arresting dozens of the Muslim Brotherhood's leading members, including the Brotherhood's guide Mohamed Badie and his deputies, on charges of inciting violence and killing protesters.
Mursi's defence team includes al-Tayeb Ali, a Briton lawyer of Pakistani origin, former British Attorney General Lord Ken Macdonald, British human rights lawyer Michael Mansfield, and South African lawyer and former United Nations' human rights rapporteur John Dugard.
It should be noted that Egypt did not join or sign the International Criminal Court treaty, a condition that grants the court the right and authority to punish any member country.
