Egypt's Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek on Saturday referred 26 state officials to criminal court on charges of facilitating the seizure of public funds worth an estimated EGP 67 million.

The defendants include the chairman of the General Authority for Reconstruction Projects and Agricultural Development.

The investigations carried out by the Supreme Public Funds Prosecution indicated that one defendant, in his capacity as employee of the executive director and chairman of the authority, facilitated the illegal seizure of a 60-acre plot located west of the Cairo-Alexandria Desert Road.

The defendants violated Article 119 of the Penal Code, according to the prosecutor-general.
