CAIRO, July 9. /ITAR-TASS reporter Dina Pyanykh /. Attorney General of Egypt Abdel Meguid Mahmoud, dismissed from his post by President Mohamed Morsi and reinstated in office by court order, has filed today an official resignation letter in the Supreme judicial board. As reported by local media, he has asked to ‘return him to judicial bodies’.
This story goes on for months. Twice in the past year, the president tried to dismiss Mahmoud, whom the Muslim Brotherhood connects with the regime of Hosni Mubarak. However, both times the entire judiciary establishment of the country stood up to the protection of the prosecutor. For the first time Morsi was forced to return him to the office of Attorney General under public pressure, and the second time the controversial presidential decree was disputed by judicial authorities at various levels.
Ultimately, on July 3, just hours before the army has toppled Mohammed Morsi, Abdel Meguid Mahmoud returned to his office in concordance with the final decision of the Supreme Court to reinstate him in office. However, the Attorney General, who survived the last few months of ups and downs and eventually remained riding a high horse, finally decided to leave his position, but this time voluntarily.
As he said in an interview with the Egyptian media, he sought justice, and when it finally triumphed, he considered a top priority returning to judging activities, which seem to him more interesting.
