CAIRO – 14 February 2018: Samir Anan, son of former Presidential candidate Sami Anan, told Egyptian television host Ahmed Moussa that his father has pressed charges against former top auditor Hisham Geneina, in response to his recent statements.
He added that his father was shocked when he found out on Monday about Geneina’s allegations, and instructed his lawyers to press charges against the latter for his claims.
Samir Anan asserted that there is no dispute between his father and the Armed Forces, and that the former Chief of Staff would never release any classified information regarding his time in service.
Geneina alleged that he acquired documents owned by Sami Anan – now arrested pending a military violations investigation – that expose the criminal violations of the Egyptian State after the January 25 Revolution.
Former top auditor Hisham Geneina was arrested by Egyptian Security Forces on Tuesday. The Military Prosecutor’s office has jailed Geneina for 15 days pending an ongoing investigation for slander.
