The Egyptian Interior Ministry on Wednesday denied that State Security Investigative Services was behind a burglary at the home of Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie.
The ministry said in a statement that all State Security offices have been shut down, affirming that the ministry adopted a different system of operation following the revolution.
The ruling Supreme Council of Armed Forces disbanded the notorious agency in response to protesters' demands.
Burglars broke into Badie's home in Beni Suef three days ago and stole important documents, CDs and a flash drive that belonged to Badie, according to the Brotherhood website. Following the break-in, Badie accused two former State Security officers.
Interior Minister Mansour al-Essawy has ordered authorities to increase efforts to find and arrest the burglars.
