Egypt's military top prosecutor imposed a media gag order Thursday on the investigation regarding presidential hopeful Sami Anan.

Former army chief-of-staff Sami Anan is being interrogated by the military prosecution after being accused him of committing a series of "violations and crimes."

The retired Egyptian general has been arrested by the military in Cairo after he announced his intention to run in March’s presidential election.

According to a statement following the arrest، the military spokesman said that Anan had falsified official documents that stated his military service had terminated، a requirement for former military officials to run for election.
