Security sources said the National Security Agency is interrogating Yasser Ali, former presidential spokesperson and ex-chief of the cabinet’s Information and Decision Support Center (IDSC).
Ali was arrested on Tuesday inside an apartment in Moqattam. The sources added that Ali allegedly assisted Qandil to escape before Qandil was arrested.
Ali is also accused of joining a 'terrorist' group. This comes after the interim government classified the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization in a controversial move.
