A dozen Egyptian officials who served in the southeastern Red Sea province were referred to trial on Saturday by the administrative prosecution on corruption charges.
An investigation showed that the officials allotted 46 pieces of land for wives, children and relatives of members of the local ruling assembly, a statement by the administrative prosecution said.
Those referred to trial include the former assistant governor of the Red Sea province. The defendants are accused of violating the rules on disposing of lands and of approving land distribution to people who do not meet eligibility requirements.
