An Egyptian court on Tuesday turned down a lawsuit seeking to abolish the appointment of former judge Hisham Genina – who was appointed by ousted president Mohamed Morsi – as head of the Central Auditing Agency (CAA), Egypt's highest oversight body, a judicial source has said.

The administrative court rejected a motion seeking to rescind the appointment of Genina as CAA head on claims that he supports the Muslim Brotherhood, the group from which Morsi hails.

The court said that the CAA head cannot be sacked under Egypt's constitution.

Genina was appointed by Morsi in September 2012 for a period of four years.

The CAA is Egypt's top regulatory body. It is mainly tasked with overseeing the state's funds and it answers directly to the president.
