Former prosecutor to be interrogated over installing listening devices

Cairo Appeal Court ordered Judge Mohamed Sherine Fahmy to investigate charges leveled against former Public Prosecutor Talaat Abdullah and his former deputy Hassan Yassin for installing cameras and listening devices in their offices.
Public Prosecutor Hesham Barakat earlier filed a report to the Supreme Judiciary Council against Abdullah and Yassin after discovering listening devices installed illegally in his office. The report urged an investigation to identify who installed them as well as the obtaining the secret recordings which took place inside the office.
The devices were discovered at offices of the public prosecutor and his deputy to secretly record conversations.
Fahmy had earlier been delegated to investigate reports against 75 judges accused of being involved in politics as well as affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood.
