It said he will stand trial in a criminal court along with 14 other suspects in his Muslim Brotherhood movement on charges of "incitement to murder and violence" in December 2012 when seven people were killed in clashes between his supporters and opponents outside the presidential palace.
Already accused of crimes related to his 2011 escape from prison, Morsi has been held incommunicado at a secret location since his ouster by the army on July 3.
