Former Secretary-General of Egypt's State Council Wael Shalaby committed suicide while in custody on Monday, a judicial source at the State Security Prosecution told Ahram Online. 

Shalaby had been arrested on Sunday and given a 44-day detention pending investigation on corruption charges.

Shalaby resigned from his post on Saturday, days after a procurement manager at the State Council, Gamal El-Laban, was arrested and charged with receiving bribes worth millions of Egyptian pounds.

Shalaby also faced accusations of receiving a bribe while in office.
