Tweeting from inside the prosecutor-general's office as he undergoes questioning for 'insulting the president,' television political satirist Bassem Youssef says the prosecution office staff were struggling to find a laptop with proper video software to screen episodes/evidence-against-him of his El-Bernameg show.
"Police officers and lawyers at the prosecutor-general's office want to be photographed with me, maybe this is why they ordered my arrest?" said Youssef sarcastically via his verified Twitter account.
He further added that while they were recording his features, he was described as both thin and average height.
"Then they asked me: What is the colour of your eyes Bassem?" tweeted the green-eyed former physician turned satirist.
Youssef turned up at the court wearing an outsized version of the hat worn by President Morsi when he received an honorary doctorate from a university in Pakistan in early March.
The prosecutor-general ordered Youssef's arrest on Saturday after a number of complaints were made against him for allegedly insulting President Mohamed Morsi, denigrating Islam and spreading false news with the aim of disrupting public order.
Youssef deleted his previous tweets shortly after noon Sunday.
