Hisham Genena released on bail, Aboul Fotouh’s family denies allegations against him
Former top auditor Hisham Genena was released on EGP 15,000 in bail following an investigation into his claim that he holds incriminating evidence against the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), Genena’s lawyer told Al Masry Al Youm. Genena is facing charges of spreading false news, harming the Armed Forces, and defaming former SCAF chief Sami Anan’s military reputation. Anan is currently also being held in military detention over his presidential bid. Meanwhile, ex-presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh’s family issued a statement denying allegations against him that he is still in contact with the Ikhwan, while his lawyer dismissed reports that his clients’ assets were frozen.
