Egypt: Khairat El-Shaater Did Not Get Code for Operating Wireless Devices - Minister

Minister of Communications and Information Technology Atef Helmy has denied reports fanned by some media outlets that senior Muslim Brotherhood member Khairat el-Shaater got the code for operating wireless devices from a ministry employee.
