An Egyptian judge was referred on Saturday to an Alexandria criminal court along with five other defendants over abuse of power and bribery charges.

According to the state security prosecution, the judge is accused of receiving a bribe of EGP 650,000 to acquit a defendant in a drug possession case.

The judge has submitted his resignation which has been accepted by the Egyptian minister of justice.

Last week, another judge was referred to a criminal court over charges of possessing 69 kilos of cannabis.
