Egypte - Un tribunal ordonne un nouveau procès pour l'ex-ministre du Pétrole

Cour de cassation égyptienne a ordonné lundi un nouveau procès pour l'ancien ministre du pétrole, Sameh Fahmy et cinq autres accusés sur les accusations d'avoir exporté du gaz vers Israël au-dessous des prix du marché, a rapporté l'agence de presse officielle MENA.

Le tribunal a annulé lundi une peine de 15 ans de prison prononcée contre M. Fahmi et d'autres accusés et a accepté leur appel.

En juin 2011, la Cour pénale du Caire a condamné M. Fahmi et le fugitif magnat des affaires Hussein Salem à 15 ans de prison. Les deux ont été reconnus coupables de corruption, de détournement et de gaspillage des fonds publics par la signature d'accords gaziers controversés avec Israël.

Egypte : Un ancien magnat de l'acier condamné à 37 ans de prison | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Un ancien magnat de l'acier égyptien, Ahmad Ezz, très proche du régime du président déchu Hosni Moubarak, a été condamné mercredi à 37 ans de prison par un tribunal de Guizeh, près du Caire.

L'homme d'affaires était inculpé pour enrichissement illégal et détournement de fonds publics d'une valeur de 5 milliards de livres égyptiennes (746 millions de dollars), a rapporté l'agence officielle Mena.

A la tête du premier groupe sidérurgique du pays et membre des instances dirigeantes du parti au pouvoir à l'époque, le Parti national démocrate (PND), il était considéré comme un proche de Gamal Moubarak, fils cadet du président et successeur potentiel de son père.

Ahmad Ezz avait déjà été condamné à 10 ans de prison en septembre 2011 pour des accusations de corruption.

 

De nombreux procès ou enquêtes judiciaires ont été ouverts depuis deux ans en Egypte contre des membres ou proches de l'ancien régime.(...)

"La nostalgie du dictateur", par Nabil El Choubachy

"La nostalgie du dictateur", par Nabil El Choubachy | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

La semaine dernière, les différentes chaînes de télévision ont diffusé en boucle le discours de l'ex-vice-président Omar Souleiman du 11 février 2011 où il annonçait la destitution de l'ancien chef de l'Etat Hosni Moubarak.
Alors qu'il y a deux ans, ce discours avait été accueilli par des cris de joie et d'une liesse populaire sans précédent, les réactions cette année ont été différentes. De très nombreuses personnes ont regardé ce discours avec nostalgie, certains n'hésitant pas à regretter les années Moubarak, alors que d'autres déclaraient: " Reviens-nous vite Abou Alaa". 
Deux ans après la Révolution du 25 Janvier, de nombreux Egyptiens en sont venus à regretter amèrement l'ère Moubarak. Et je ne parle pas des nostalgiques de ces années qui ont toujours été fidèles à l'ancien président, mais de personnes qui, même si elles n'étaient pas des inconditionnelles de la Place Tahrir, voyaient quand même cette révolution d'un bon œil et y étaient plutôt favorables. 
Le véritable crime des Frères musulmans et de leurs prédécesseurs dans la gestion du pays, le Conseil Suprême des Forces armées, c'est d'avoir conduit de très nombreux Egyptiens à regretter les années Moubarak. 
En deux ans, les uns et les autres ont mené des politiques catastrophiques en conduisant l'Egypte au bord de l'abime. (Le Progrès égyptien)

Mubarak's PM, Interior Minister granted retrial in corruption case | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's Court of Appeal accepted the appeal of former prime minister Ahmed Nazif and notorious former interior minister Habib El-Adly on Wednesday.

Both Nazif and Adly were accused of giving a German company a contract worth LE92 million to manufacture license plates for the Egyptian Ministry of Interior, through a direct order and not through public auction as stipulated by law. Both were found guilty and given five year prison sentences. The success of the appeal means both will face a retrial.

The court has also ordered the retrial of former tourism minister and business tycoon Zoheir Garana, following an appeal. Garana was sentenced to three years on corruption charges related to issuing licenses to tourism agencies owned by himself and his business acquaintances.

Mubarak's chief of staff, Zakaria Azmi, was acquitted by the Court of Appeals after he completed a temporary jail sentence which the Egyptian penal code stated cannot exceed "a maximum period of 18 months."

"Azmi will still be held under custody as he is still under investigation in several other cases related to profiteering and abuse of power," Mostafa Hosseiny, Public Funds Prosecutor-General, told Ahram Online.Egypt's Court of Appeal accepted the appeal of former prime minister Ahmed Nazif and notorious former interior minister Habib El-Adly on Wednesday.

Egypt-actus's insight:

Un tribunal du Caire a ordonné mercredi la remise en liberté de l'ancien directeur de cabinet d'Hosni Moubarak, Zakaria Azmi, incarcéré pour une affaire de corruption qui fera l'objet d'un nouveau procès. Quatre autres anciens responsables de l'ère Moubarak, dont l'ex-Premier ministre Ahmed Nazif, seront également rejugés, précise la presse égyptienne.

En mai dernier, Zakaria Azmi a été condamné à sept ans de prison et à une amende de plus de 36 millions de livres égyptiennes (4 millions d'euros) pour enrichissement frauduleux. Une cour d'appel a ordonné récemment un nouveau procès dans cette affaire et un autre tribunal a demandé mercredi la libération d'Azmi, la loi interdisant de maintenir plus de dix-huis mois en prison un simple suspect.

Shazly and Suleiman families required to pay for illegal gifts | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The public funds prosecution has demanded that the heirs of two former regime figures pay back the value of gifts they received from state-owned media outlet Akhbar al-Youm, the Public Funds Prosecutor said on Monday.

The heirs of Kamal al-Shazly, the former parliamentary affairs minister, and former Vice President Omar Suleiman, would have to pay back the value of the gifts said Mostafa al-Husseini.

Husseini said that these cases do not end with the death of the defendant, but are collected from heirs in accordance with the law.

The Supreme Public Funds Prosecution had agreed to a request from Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, the two sons of the ousted president Hosni Mubarak, to pay LE11 million, from their frozen bank accounts representing the value of gifts they, their wives and parents had received from the publishing house on a yearly basis.

The prosecution had earlier received four reports from the Central Auditing Authority on Akhbar al-Youm and Dar Al-Tahrir, another state media outlet, giving expensive gifts to Mubarak, his family, and 50 figures with ties to him.

Another report said that former Information Minister Anas al-Fiqqi gave LE4 million in gifts to Mubarak from the television institution.
