World Bulletin/News Desk

An arrest warrant has been issued for former justice minister Ahmed Mekki as part of ongoing investigations into Mubarak-era election fraud.

A judicial source said that Mekki, who served as a justice minister for several months under ousted President Mohamed Morsi, had failed to show up to testify in cases of election fraud related to Egypt's 2005 and 2010 parliamentary polls.

According to the source, the warrant was issued in line with a legal article that allows the arrest of witnesses who fail to provide testimony.

An arrest warrant was also issued for Noha al-Zeni, deputy head of Egypt's State Litigation Authority, for the same reason.
