Morsi's supporters who disagreed with the army's decision have been conducting daily protests for over a month demanding the return of the president and restoration the Constitution.
The court also extended the decision to arrest Morsi for 15 days as a part of the ongoing investigation. The court accused him of cooperating with Hamas, as well as the escape from prison during the revolution in 2011.
