66 corruption cases in Egypt in January

Partners for Transparency (PFT) counted 66 cases of corruption in Egyptian state institutions across the country in January, a report revealed on Saturday.

The report noted that there have been several Egyptian officials who have pledged to fight corruption, but they did nothing tangible on the ground.

The Ministry of Supply was the largest offender with 16 corruption cases brought against it followed by the public services and administration sector which had 11 cases and the education, agriculture and health ministries which had six cases brought against each of them.

Some 76 per cent of cases are being investigated, 23 per cent went to court and only one per cent has received a verdict.

Cairo was the city with the largest number of corruption cases recorded, 12.
