CAIRO: Egypt’s Central Auditing Organization (CAO) chairperson Hesham Genena will be investigated over accusations of “insulting judiciary power” Tuesday, Youm7 reported Monday.

Minister of Justice Ahmed al- Zend accused Genena of insulting the judicial authority after accused judges of corruption during a talk show with journalist Wael al-Ebrashy on Nov. 2014.

Zend also filed another lawsuit against Genena over accusations of “defaming the judges” after the CAO chairperson conducted an interview with al-Tahrir newspaper, criticizing the judges in January; the General Prosecution set January 30 for the investigations.

Genena is being investigated in a third case as he stated to the media that a total of 600 billion EGP ($75 billion) was stolen from public money due to the corruption over 2015. Attorney General Nabil Ahmed Sadek imposed Wednesday evening a media gag on investigations.
