CAIRO, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's Prosecutor-General Abdel- Maguid Mahmoud, who has just returned to his post, demanded be back to the judiciary stage as a judge due to "feeling uneasiness, " official MENA news agency reported Friday.

Mahmoud, who was dismissed by a controversial constitutional declaration issued by ousted President Mohamed Morsi on Nov. 21, 2012, returned to his post as a prosecutor-general by a ruling issued on Tuesday by the Court of Cassation.

"My decision came due to feeling uneasiness towards the future measures and decisions that will be taken by the prosecution towards those who sacked me," said Mahmoud in a statement, referring to some figures related to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group, to which the ousted President Morsi was affiliated.

"The prosecution decisions should come distinct and can't be doubtful," he added.

Morsi was ousted by the army on Wednesday after mass protest had flooded the streets for four consecutive days since June 30.

One day after Morsi's ouster, Egypt's military forces arrested the MB's top leader Mohamed Badie; while the MB's Freedom and Justice Party leader Mohamed Saad al-katatni and deputy general guide of the group Rashad al-Bayoumi were arrested on the day of Morsi's ouster.
