Court to issue another verdict on Hisham Geneina in October

Former top auditor is accused of spreading false information


The New Cairo Court decided on Sunday that it will issue the final verdict on a case involving former head of the Central Auditing Organisation (CAO), Hisham Geneina, and Al-Tahrir journalists, Huda Abou Bakr and Ismail Al-Wasimy, on 23 October.

The defendants are accused of spreading false information and misleading the public.

The case started when Hisham Geneina claimed in local media that former justice minister Ahmed Al-Zind sold a piece of land belonging to the Judges Club, which the latter headed at the time, to a relative.

Geneina previously received a one-year prison sentence following his recent allegations that government corruption had resulted in the loss of EGP 600bn in state funds.
