Interim President Adly Mansour has transferred Judge Osama al-Saeedy to a non-judicial post at the Manpower Ministry with the same salary and status.
Saeedy was in charge of the Army Pilots Association land case.
Last month, former presidential hopeful Ahmed Shafiq was cleared of corruption charges allegedly related to granting lands allocated to pilots to ex-president Hosni Mubarak’s sons at low costs.
Shafiq has been residing in the United Arab Emirates since his loss to deposed president Mohamed Morsy in 2012.
