Ali Omran named interim general prosecutor

The Supreme Judicial Council has tasked Ali Omran, the most senior assistant general prosecutor, to temporarily become General prosecutor, succeeding the late Hesham Barakat who was assassinated last week.
Omran is the head of judicial inspection at the General Prosecution.
His predecessor, Hesham Barakat, was killed in a car bomb near his residence east of Cairo as Egypt marked the second anniversary of the ouster of the government of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose members have been sentenced in thousands to various sentences under Barakat.
