Military refers dismissed interior minister to State Security Prosecution

State Security investigators, not military prosecutors, are about to launch investigations into former Egyptian Interior Minister Habib al-Adli and a number of other security officials, according to judicial sources.
The same sources added that relevant documents presented by military prosecutors–concerning the killing of demonstrators, acts of vandalism and arson and the release of criminals from prisons–had been sent to Attorney-General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud.
The attorney-general has drawn up a team of prosecutors to conduct investigations under the supervision of his assistant and a number of district attorneys.
The prosecution has requested that the health ministry send it a forensic report stating the cause of death and injury of demonstrators.
Prosecutors took testimony from forensic doctors who participated in the autopsies and are also expected to take testimony from the families of victims.
A forensics doctor, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the causes of death had varied from gunshot wounds to impact with blunt objects to asphyxiation.
