The youngest son of  former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi died of a heart attack on Wednesday, according to local and foreign news sources.

According to Reuters, Abdallah Morsi, who was in his mid-twenties, suddenly started suffering from heath complications, namely spams, while driving in the Egyptian capital prior to being admitted to Oasis hospital in Giza.

His death was confirmed shortly afterwards by his brother Ahmed and a family lawyer.

The sudden event occurred two months after his father’s passing due to similar issues.

In June, Egyptian state TV reported that the elder Morsi fainted after a court session where he was on trial for espionage.

Morsi’s youngest son Abdallah was vocal about his father’s prison conditions. He himself was detained in November 2018 on charges of spreading false news.

Following the elder Morsi’s death, Abdallah also expressed that his father had not been allowed to be buried in the family cemetery by Egyptian authorities as per Reuters.

Former president Mohamed Morsi, who was deposed on July 2013 after mass protests against his government, had won Egypt’s first elections following the toppling of his predecessor Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

His short-term presidency is often hailed as a time of contention between secular society and the Muslim Brotherhood.
