Cairo: Egypt`s Prosecutor-General Abdel-Maguid Mahmoud, who was recently reinstated, has resigned and demanded he should return as a judge on Tuesday.
Mahmoud, who was dismissed by a controversial constitutional declaration by deposed president Mohamed Morsi Nov 21, 2012, returned to his post under a ruling July 2 by the Court of Cassation.

However, he asked during the weekend to return to the judiciary as a judge, citing "uneasiness" he felt about the prosecution`s future decisions towards those who sacked him, Xinhua cited the report as saying.
It said Mahmoud was probably referring to some people linked with the Muslim Brotherhood, with which Morsi is affiliated.
