Egypt's former top auditor ordered detained for 15 days

The lawyer told media that military prosecutors have made a decision to remand Geneina in custody for 15 days pending the completion of an investigation. He told HuffPost Arabi that Anan, now in prison, might leak the files if he is formally charged with a crime by military prosecutors or was hurt.

Anan Junior also told Bakry that he contacted his family's lawyer to file a report against Geneina, accusing him of inciting a social strife in Egypt amid a war against terrorism.

His arrest comes after the Supreme Committee of the Armed Forces (SCAF) said it would launch an investigation into both the ex-presidential candidate and his campaign manager over remarks in which Genena claimed Anan held secret "documents and evidence" that would incriminate people in power for incidents that followed the January 25 uprising.

The army threatened to take legal actions against Geneina for the allegations, claiming they jeopardize national security. His wife, Wafaa Kedieh, said that he was taken to the military prosecution.

Mr Genena's sister, Enas, told The Telegraph that dozens of police had come to his home in New Cairo at around noon on Tuesday.

Anan's lawyer criticized Genena's statement on his Facebook page saying it was "completely untrue", without specifying which remarks he was referring to.

The statement further stressed that it will use all its constitutional and legal rights to take the necessary procedures against Geneina and Anan.

United States says it is following the case of Hisham Genena who was arrested over remarks about incriminating documents.

He is accused of declaring his intention to run in the 2018 presidential elections. scheduled for late March, without getting permission from the army, driving a wedge between the army and the Egyptian public, and forgery of official documents. His alleged assailants said his injuries were the result of a fight after a auto accident.

Hisham Genena was Egypt's anti-corruption chief until he was sacked and prosecuted in 2016 for exposing widespread government fraud and became a prominent government critic.
