I do happen to agree with this article in the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/aug/12/egyptian-defence-chief-ousted-shakeup that this came about and in the words of the Guardian: " safe exit scenario that would see SCAF members leave office without fear of prosecution for crimes committed against protestors during their tenure including when army APCs ran over Coptic Christian protestors on 9 October 2011 killing 27."

et voila now we know why Tantawi and his gang left but would this be enough to protect them from further prosecution in the future? Well they do not seem to realize that in Egyptian law there is no statute of limitations on murder so Tantawi and his gang have not seen the end of it and it serves them right
