Prosecutor General Talaat Ibrahim Abdallah on Tuesday referred a complaint
accusing former presidential candidates and politicians of spying and
inciting the overthrow of the government to the State Security Prosecution
for investigation.

Hamed Sadeq, a lawyer who filed the report, accused former presidential
candidates Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabbahi, Constitution Party leader Mohamed
ElBaradei, Wafd Party president Al-Sayed al-Badawy and Judges Club head
Ahmed al-Zend of espionage and sedition.

Sadeq claimed that Moussa met with former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi
Livni and agreed with her to fabricate internal crises, and that all of the
politicians named in his complaint then met at the Wafd Pary headquarters to
implement the “Zionist plot.” He requested that the accused be banned from
travel and that the Wafd Party headquarters be confiscated for
investigation.

Filing criminal charges against opposition figures was a common practice
during former President Hosni Mubarak’s era.

Ghad al-Thawra Party leader Ayman Nour was sentenced to five years in prison
in December 2005 for allegedly forging signatures to enable him to register
the Ghad Party. The party had been approved in 2004. Nour was released from
prison in February 2009.

Nour finished second after Mubarak in the presidential election in September
2005. Some observers argued that the case was punishment for his unexpected
bid for presidency.
