Prosecutor General Talaat Abdullah will begin on Saturday to investigate reports filed against political groups and figures for “incitement to overthrow the regime”.
Aswat Masriya reported that the office of Hassan Yassin, assistant to the prosecutor general, will compile all filed reports, most of which are against political figures and party heads, including Mohamed ElBaradei, Amr Moussa, El-Sayed El-Badawi, Hamdeen Sabahy, Mamdouh Hamza and Mahmoud Badr.
Yassin’s office also started compiling reports filed against the Tamarod campaign, which has been collecting signatures on petitions to withdraw confidence from President Mohamed Morsi.
“Such a decision doesn’t make any difference to us, since we don’t recognise [Abdullah] as prosecutor general,” said Khaled Al-Qady, Tamarod spokesperson in Alexandria.
