Former presidential spokesperson remanded into custody

The South Giza Court remanded former presidential spokesperson Yasser Ali into custody for 45 days pending investigation into his alleged involvement in Muslim Brotherhood activities.

Prosecutors accuse him of helping Brotherhood leaders flee the country, instigating acts of violence during the events that followed 30 June and helping former Prime Minister Hisham Qandil evade judicial prosecution. 

Ali is also charged with joining a terrorist organization, threatening public peace and security, blocking roads and destroying public and private property.
He denied all charges, saying that he was not ever seen with Qandil in one place and that he did not know Qandil was wanted by the authorities.
