Several employees of the national airline Egypt Air have filed a complaint with the attorney general against Ahmed Shafiq, former prime minster and former aviation minister, on allegations of wasting public money.

The accusations include ordering that the contract to construct Cairo Airport’s Terminal 3 be given to companies of businessmen Magdy Rasekh and Mahmoud El-Gammal, Hosni Mubarak's in-laws, at overinflated prices reaching LE3.3 billion with loans from the World Bank.

So what's next?
The main issue is that nobody from Gvmt started the invistigation regarding what's mentioned here. I wonder what are we/they waiting for? Even he's nominated to participate on the Egyptian presidency!!! May be they can do it once he is in power.
