An Egyptian government report on the prosecution of Ayman Nour, of al-Ghad party, said: The General Prosecution, being always keen to announce the truth to the public opinion, as deemed, the only honest party of the public suing process, saw that it is necessary to declare the following facts:
Charges under inquiry with the MP Ayman Nour constitute crimes that must be penalized by the law, as enlisted by the Egyptian law.
The Prosecution charged him of forging governmental signets and official papers such as the special proxies of Al-Ghad (Future) Party which he introduced to the parties committee in Shura Council to secure license of establishing his party plus his pre-knowledge of the forging actions.
The Prosecution did not include any political crimes in its statements.
The running interrogation did not tackle any way the idea of setting up or the continuity of Al-Ghad Party, as it is still working according to its own institutional system.
The Public Prosecutor entrusted the Supreme State Security Prosecution to deal with this case because it has the wide scale responsibility around the republic.
Investigations comprised a number of the notarization offices related to the Notarization Department in the governorates, for this will warrant the unity of investigations and the rapid achievement under the auspices of the Public Prosecutor.
