CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian military prosecutors referred the country's former top auditor to a military court over statements deemed insulting to the armed forces, state media reported on Thursday. Hesham Genena was arrested in February after claiming on television that former military chief of staff Sami Annan, whom he was advising in a presidential bid, was in possession of documents incriminating the country's leadership. Annan's lawyer later criticized Genena's statements as "untrue" and said they shouldn't be attributed to his client.
