CAIRO – 27 February 2018: The Military Prosecutor’s office renewed the detention of former top auditor Hisham Geneina for 45 days, pending investigations, according to Geneina’s lawyer.

On February 14, Geneina was arrested and then ordered to be held for 15 days over the statements he made publicly about him possessing documents that could allegedly confirm the implication of senior military officials in corruption and killing demonstrators during the 2011 revolution.

Geneina threatened to publish the alleged documents if legal procedures were taken against the Chief of Staff of Armed Forces Sami Anan. Anan Junior accused the former top auditor of slander and spreading false information on the behalf of his father.

The former top auditor was a leading member in Sami Anan’s presidential campaign; before the latter was excluded from the race over charges of breaking military codes by running for a political post without obtaining the necessary permissions, incitement against the army, and forgery of election documents.
