The complaint asks the Prosecutor General to investigate into all Kamal Abbas’ secret activities, financed by foreign entities in order to execute a plan threatening the security of the country through the denigration of the official trade union organization, sowing discord among workers, and destabilizing enterprises by bringing production to a standstill.

The CTUWS together with a number of workers’ leaders had filed complaint No 1364 to the Prosecutor General on February 6, 2011, requesting an investigation into the sources of President of ETUF Hussein Megawer’s wealth, estimated at tens of millions of Egyptian pounds. The Public Finance Prosecution started an investigation regarding CTUWS’s complaint. The lawyer of CTUWS presented documents in support of the complaint. The prosecution asked all administrative control organs concerned with different elements of the complaint to provide their certified views on these elements.
