Morsi was buried on Tuesday, as rights groups including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch called for an independent probe into the causes of his death.

On Wednesday, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Hafez slammed a United Nations call for an inquiry as a "deliberate attempt to politicise a natural death".

"Muhammed Morsi flailed on the courtroom floor for 20 minutes and the authorities did not help him".

Foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said he condemned "in the strongest terms" the call by the spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, for an independent investigation into Morsi's death during a court hearing on Monday.

Hafez said Colville's "politicized and immature" remarks match those from a country exploiting Morsi's death for political purposes - a likely reference to Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday stated that former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was 'killed.' The Turkish leader also slammed Egyptian officials for not taking any measures to save the ex-president.

But Ankara's relations with Cairo ties deteriorated after the Egyptian military, then led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, ousted Morsi in 2013.

During his years in prison, Morsi, who was known to have diabetes, was often held in solitary confinement and was largely barred from receiving visitors.

Morsi came to power after Hosni Mubarak was deposed in the 2011 Arab Spring, after which the Muslim Brotherhood was legalized with Morsi as its preferred candidate, winning the 2012 presidential election. His family was only allowed to visit three times. In the meantime, he called on the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to take action following Morsi's death, though he did not specify how exactly.

Morsi died while appearing in court on spying charges.

"We will do whatever is needed for Egypt to be tried in worldwide courts".

His death "is an opportunity to shed light on the health conditions inside Egyptian prisons, particularly prisons housing activists and political detainees", EIPR said.
