Cassation Court revokes Safwat El-Sherif’s jail sentence in illicit gains case

Safwat El-Sherif served as former president of the Shura Council

The Cassation Court accepted the appeal of Mubarak-era senior politician Safwat El-Sherif on Saturday against a previous five-year prison sentence in an illicit gains case, state-owned media Al-Ahram reported.

In May 2016, El-Sherif, former president of the Shura Council, was sentenced to five years in prison, while his two sons also received prison sentences.

According to Al-Ahram, the court had also fined them EGP 209m on charges of misusing power to illegally seize funds. El-Sherif is estimated to have made gains of EGP 300m.
