Egypt's prosecutor-general Talaat Abdallah is currently preparing an appeal against the court verdict to dismiss him from his position last week, said State Security Attorney-General Hisham El-Qarmooty Saturday.

El-Qarmouty, who has visited Abdallah Saturday in his office at the High Court along with a group of other top judicial lawyers, told Ahram Online that Abdallah asserted that the verdict was non-enforceable on grounds that it is against the law and the constitution which makes it void.

On Wednesday, An Egyptian court has reversed President Morsi's decision to dismiss former prosecutor-general Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud from his post.

The removal of the prosecutor-general sparked uproar among the Egyptian opposition and the judiciary.

Critics said the constitutional declaration had granted the president both executive and legislative powers.

Many opposition groups are demanding the dismissal of the current prosecutor-general, Talaat Abdullah.
