Minister of Justice Mohamed Abdel Aziz El-Guindy commissions two judges to investigate foreign funding allegations


Minister of Justice Mohamed Abdel Aziz El-Guindy says he has commissioned two ‎Appeal Court judges to investigate allegations that ‎Egyptian organisations have been receiving foreign financial support.‎

El-Guindy told Ahram Online’s Arabic version that, “Some of these organisations are not well-‎known, while others are American. ‎

“I listed all the organisations that are under suspicion and I sent the list to two judges at the ‎Appeal Court for investigation.”‎

Some political movements, including the April 6 Youth Movement, are accused of ‎receiving financial support from countries that aim to harm Egypt.

The April 6 Youth Movement has categorically denied the allegation on several occasions. ‎

El-Guindy claimed that these organisations face accusations of betraying their country by ‎deliberately increasing strife, with the help of other countries.
