القاهرة، مصر (CNN)-- تضاربت التقارير خلال الساعات الماضية حول إيداع الرئيس المصري "المعزول"، محمد مرسي، مستشفى سجن "برج العرب"، والذي نُقل إليه فور انتهاء أولى جلسات محاكمته، مع 14 آخرين، من قيادات جماعة "الإخوان المسلمين"، بقضية "أحداث الاتحادية."
وأكد مصدر أمني مسؤول بوزارة الداخلية لـCNN بالعربية، أنه تم إيداع الرئيس السابق إحدى الغرف الملحقة بمستشفى السجن، حيث خضع لبعض الفحوصات الطبية، مؤكداً أن حالته الصحية "جيدة"، مشيراً إلى أن هذه "إجراءات عادية"، يتم اتباعها مع جميع المتهمين، الذين يتم نقلهم إلى السجن.
ورداً على سؤال عما إذا كان الرئيس "المعزول" سيتم نقله لاحقاً إلى إحدى زنزانات السجن، أوضح المسؤول الأمني أن الغرفة الملحقة بمستشفى السجن تُعتبر "زنزانة" أيضاً، مشيراً إلى أن الرئيس السابق ارتدى بالفعل ملابس السجن البيضاء، المخصصة للمحبوسين احتياطياً.
إلى ذلك، أفادت قناة "النيل" للأخبار، نقلاً عن مدير أمن الإسكندرية، اللواء أمين عز الدين، بأن الرئيس "المعزول"، دخل مستشفى سجن برج العرب لإجراء فحوصات طبية، مشيراً إلى أن "ذلك يُعد إجراءً قانونياً، طبقاً للوائح والقوانين الخاصة بمصلحة السجون."
وعلى عكس ما أفاد به المسؤول الأمني لـCNN بالعربية، فقد أكد مدير أمن الإسكندرية أن الرئيس السابق سيتم نقله إلى زنزانة السجن، عقب إجراء الفحوصات الطبية، أو سيظل في المستشفى، إذا أفاد التقرير الطبي الخاص به، بقاءه بمستشفى السجن.
Egypts deposed president today claimed he was the countrys legitimate leader in a defiant court appearance after four months in secret detention.
Mohammed Morsi, 62, was flown in by helicopter to the Cairo police academy compound where the trial was being held before being transferred to the courtroom by minibus.
He rejected the courts authority to try him and claimed that those that overthrew him should be on trial instead.
On trial: Mohammed Morsi stands in the cage in a Cairo courtroom after being flown in from the secret detention centre where he has been held for four months
Anger: Fourteen other members of the Muslim Brotherhood are on trial with Morsi. While he wore a suit, they were clad in white prison uniform
The trial was then adjourned until Jan. 8 after several interruptions. If convicted, Morsi and 14 other defendants could face the death penalty.
The countrys first freely elected president has been held at an undisclosed location since the military ousted him in a coup on July 3.
Looking healthy, he appeared in court wearing a dark blue suit, but no tie. He had refused to wear a prison uniform as the judge had ordered, according to security officials.
Morsi and 14 co-defendants, prominent figures from his Muslim Brotherhood, face charges of inciting the killing of protesters who massed outside the presidential palace in December, demanding he call off a referendum on a new constitution drafted by his Islamist allies.
Brotherhood members attacked a sit-in by the protesters, sparking clashes that left 10 people dead.
The longtime Brotherhood leader rejected the proceedings and said he had been forced to attend.
This is a military coup whose leaders must be put on trial in accordance with the constitution, Morsi told the court.

Emerging from four months in secret detention, Egypts deposed Islamist president defiantly rejected a courts authority to try him, saying he was the countrys legitimate leader
Strong words: I am the president of the republic and I am here against my will, he said
I am the president of the republic and I am here against my will, he said. What is happening here is providing cover for the military coup, he said, as his co-defendants chanted down, down with military coup.
Mondays raucous session reflected the highly charged atmosphere of a nation deeply polarised between Morsis Islamist supporters, and the military-backed administration and moderate Egyptians who support it.
The start of the hearing was delayed by nearly two hours over what the officials said was a dispute over Morsis refusal to wear a prison uniform, part of his rejection of the trials legitimacy. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity.
The judge, Ahmed Sabry Youssef, had to adjourn the hearing twice because the chants disrupted the proceedings.
The proceedings were adjourned until January 8 to allow defence lawyers to review documents, the courts secretary said.
Defense lawyers said the judge has ruled that they have access to their clients in prison.
It was not immediately clear where Morsi was taken after the adjournment.
State TV initially reported he was to be transferred to the main prison in Cairo where his co-defendants are being held. But later it reported he was being taken to a prison in the desert near Alexandria.
Demonstrations: Egyptian policemen arrest a supporter of ousted president Mohamed Morsi during a protest in Ramses Square on the first day of Morsis trial
Support: Morsis supports rallied angrily outside the court
Support: Egyptian students deploy a giant poster depicting Morsi during a protest at Cairos university to support him
Adjourned: An Egyptian judge has adjourned the trial of Morsi until 08 January 2014
The military says it removed Morsi only after the public turned against him with protests by millions demanding his removal, accusing him and the Brotherhood of trying to subvert the law and impose their will on the country.
Morsis supporters accuse the military of crushing Egypts nascent democracy by overturning the results of multiple elections won by the Islamists since the ouster in 2011 of autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a popular uprising.
Rights advocates have expressed concern about the fairness of the trial as it is taking place in the atmosphere of a widescale crackdown on the Brotherhood and its Islamist allies in which several thousand have been arrested and hundreds killed.
The judicial system also is stacked with Morsis adversaries, with whom he clashed repeatedly during his yearlong presidency.
In a last-minute change, authorities on Sunday switched the trials venue in a move apparently aimed at thwarting mass rallies planned by Morsis Brotherhood.
Four fingers: Several hundred Morsi supporters rallied outside the police academy, carrying posters with his photo and banners depicting an open palm with four fingers - the symbol commemorating a pro-Morsi sit-in that was violently cleared
Clashes: Morsi supporters run for cover of tear gas fired by anti-riot police during clashes at Ramsis square

Security was tight around the police academy, with hundreds of black-clad riot police backed by armored vehicles deployed around the sprawling complex.
Police helicopters hovered over the site.
The final stretch of road leading to the academy was sealed off, with only authorised personnel and accredited journalists allowed to approach the facility.
The academy also being used for the re-trial of Mubarak, charged with failing to stop the killing of some 900 protesters during the 18-day uprising that toppled his 29-year regime.
But unlike Mubaraks first trial, the proceedings against Morsi were not aired live.

They also chanted slogans against Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the military chief who led the July coup.
Police fired in the air to separate them from Morsis opponents.
They used tear gas to end clashes between the two sides outside a major court complex in Cairos downtown area. Police also used tear gas to disperse thousands of Morsi supporters in the southern city of Assiut
