Genena ordered detained by military prosecutors
Genena detained by military prosecution for 15 days: Military prosecutors ordered former head of the Central Auditing Organization Hesham Genena to be detained for 15 days pending investigation of his claim that he holds incriminating evidence against the Supreme Council of Armed Forces, state news agency MENA reported, according to Reuters.
Genena’s detention comes two days after the release of his interview with HuffPost Arabi, in which he threatened to release the evidence if former military chief of staff Sami Anan is subjected to harm in military detention. Genena had been one of Anan’s top aides during the latter’s short-lived presidential bid.
Meanwhile, Anan’s son distanced himself from Genena’s comments to HuffPost Arabi. Speaking to Dream TV’s Wael El Ebrashi on Monday night, he said that it would not make sense for his father to incriminate the military council to which he once belonged. He also added that he would take legal action against Genena for “spreading pro-Ikhwan rumors and propaganda”.
