Update: Former Egyptian PM Ahmed Shafiq left Emirates to Cairo: UAE news agency

Ex Egypt premier Ahmed Shafik deported from UAE to Egypt Family

Egypt's former Prime Minister and presidential potentate Ahmed Shafiq is facing charges of violating building regulations and will be investigated on the matter within the coming hours, state-run Akhbar Al-Youm indicated on Sunday.

"Just because he announced he will run for president they deported him to Egypt and I don't know what will they do to him", she said. "He confirmed that his health was good and that he was not subjected to any investigations", she wrote.

Amira Ahmed Shafik said in a voice recording sent to Bloomberg that her father was denied access to his lawyer and that they planned to sue the Egyptian authorities over his treatment.

An official source at the interior ministry said: "We do not know anything about Shafiq".

"So far the general has not called me and I was not summoned to meet him", said Adly.

Shafiq - the last prime minister of Egypt's Mubarak era - announced late last month that he was planning to run in the presidential elections scheduled in 2018.

Shafik came in second to deposed President Mohammed Morsi in the 2012 presidential elections with over 12 million votes (49 percent of the tally).

But critics say he has jailed hundreds of dissidents and eroded freedoms gained after the 2011 uprising that ousted former leader Hosni Mubarak.

Then, on Saturday, Shafik's lawyer said that she had not been able to speak to her client since Friday and that he had been arrested at his home in the UAE and would be deported to Egypt.

Earlier this year, he brushed off widespread public criticism and ratified an agreement that cedes sovereignty over two uninhabited Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia.

A prominent military commander, he was appointed commander of the air force in 1996 and later minister of aviation in 2002. He has also been accused of "destabilizing" Egypt.

Two private lawyers filed legal complaints against Shafiq with the public prosecutor in Egypt because an announcement linked to his election bid had been broadcast on Qatari-based Al Jazeera.

Charges were laid down against him, but he was acquitted of some, while the others were dropped.

But his government is fighting a stubborn Islamist militant insurgency in the Sinai region and has also enacted painful austerity reforms over the previous year to revive the economy but that critics say have dented his popularity.
