Egypt Mubarak-era minister jailed for corruption

An Egyptian court has sentenced former Tourism Minister Zohair Garanah, convicted of corruption to three years of jail.



Cairo: An Egyptian court has sentenced a
Hosni Mubarak-era Cabinet minister to three years in prison
after convicting him of corruption.

The verdict against businessman and former Tourism
Minister Zohair Garanah was announced today.

He is the latest senior member of the former regime to be
convicted of corruption since the popular uprising toppled
Mubarak in February.

Steel magnate Ahmed Ezz was sentenced to 10 years in
prison on Friday. Former Trade Minister Rachid Mohammed
Rachid, who remains at large, was sentenced to 15 years in the
same case.

In May, Mubarak`s security chief Habib el-Adly became the
first of some two dozen detained regime leaders to be
convicted. He was sentenced to 12 years for money laundering
and other corruption charges.
