Egypt to Probe Tantawi Over Court Spending


Egypt's public prosecutor is investigating a case over court spending brought against Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, the head of the army council that ruled the country until five months ago, the Al-Ahram newspaper reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the public prosecutor would investigate a case brought against Tantawi over spending by the supreme constitutional court. Tantawi headed an army council that ruled Egypt from the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in February 2011 until President Mohammed Morsi took office in June.
