An Egyptian appeals court endorsed on Monday a verdict relieving Prime Minister Hisham Qandil of his duties and sentencing him to one year in prison for not executing a court ruling.

The appeals court's endorsement of the verdict against Qandil comes amid unconfirmed reports that President Mohamed Morsi, who appointed the premier, will be overthrown within a few hours.

Qandil was convicted for failing to execute a verdict ordering the reinstatement of employees at Tanta Flax and Oil Company and for annulling the company's sale to a Saudi businessman.

Grabbing to Power all politicians are the same
It is terrible to see that Mursi is sticking to power even after millions are against him, In India many political leaders are corrupted and people want them to replace they still stick to their seats and positions terrible it happens in India Russia Pakistan and in many asian nations.
