At the time, the spokesman for the dissolved Military Council, Shams el-Din Kabbashi, said that they had ordered the sit-in to be dispersed in accordance with the military procedures followed, but there was a “deviation” by those leading the operation.

The head of the independent commission clarified that the Attorney General has an appellate authority regarding the commission’s decisions to file charges.

He pointed out that the committee will present the report upon completion of its preparation to the Attorney General and the Prime Minister.
