Egyptian Prosecutor-General Talaat Abdullah ordered Saturday the investigation of complaints filed against a number of opposition figures accused of "conspiring to overthrow the regime" in planning widely anticipated anti-government rallies Sunday, 30 June, judicial sources tell Ahram Online.

Abdullah, appointed by President Mohamed Morsi last November, ordered his deputy, Judge Hassan Yassin, to compile and start investigating all complaints filed against the organisers of the 30 June rallies, one day before they are supposed to take place.

Before prosecutors are complaints filed against opposition leaders Mohamed ElBaradei, Hamdeen Sabbahi and Amr Moussa (the three main leaders of opposition umbrella group, the National Salvation Front) as well as Mahmoud Badr, founder of the Rebel campaign petition, collecting signatures since late May for withdrawing confidence from the president and forcing early presidential elections.

The prosecution has not disclosed the total number of complaints filed.

Rebel campaigners accuse Islamist President Morsi, elected last June, of "failing to implement policies to improve the life of ordinary people."

adding fuel to the fire
So once again morsi & his regime of mb extremists are not thinking..Do they not realize everything they are doing lately is just adding more fuel to an already towering inferno of flames..It seems all that morsi & the mb have been doing is just making things worse for themselves, making the people more resentful, angry & determined. When morsi & the mb regime falls it is their own fault, they have no one else to blame but themselves,although they sure do keep trying. They need to accept responsibility for the total chaos & downward slide of Egypt & stop blaming everyone else. The people keep speaking & the regime keeps turning a deaf ear & refusing to listen.
