Egypt media leak claims military interference

In audio recording, officers allegedly debate ways to forge evidence against President Morsi after deposing him in 2013.

    A pro-Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian TV station has aired an audio recording which it claims is of top military commanders discussing ways to forge evidence against deposed President Mohamed Morsi. The Mokamelen TV channel maintains that the recordings reveal a number of generals discussing ways to deceive the public and the courts over the whereabouts of Morsi.

    Morsi was president at the time and being detained by the army after a military takeover in July 2013. He was being held at a secret military location and that made the generals nervous.

    In the recording, a man believed to be the military’s legal adviser explains what was at stake to the office manager of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the defence minister at the time and current president.

    Al Jazeera cannot independently verify the contents of the recordings.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
