Atef Ebeid
Ated Ebeid is a man who would never let a dime's worth of money into his house unless he rightfully earned it. I hope these false accusations are cleared soon. He retired in 2004, and yet they want to investigate with him now? Let them do all the investigating they wish to do. They will never find an ounce of evidence that dishonours this man. He was one of the best prime ministers Egypt ever witnessed and he was fair and just. All the major properties he owned, were bought by him BEFORE he became a minister, let alone before he entered politics, so how can people say that he used corrupted wealth to gain property? It's ridiculous. In a time when bribery was common and corruption widespread, he partook in none of it, and kept his hands clean, and that is the truth everyone needs to know.
