Exiled Mohamed Ali referred to Egyptian court on charges of tax evasion

Army contractor-turned-political dissident Mohamed Ali has been referred to a criminal court on charges of tax evasion, reports Ahram Online. The public prosecutor’s office said in a statement that it had concluded in an investigation opened on the request of the finance minister that “[Ali] had avoided paying VAT by lying on tax records and through fake companies.” Ali, who is in self-imposed exile in Spain, posted a series of viral videos earlier this year accusing the Egyptian government of corruption and public funds mismanagement.
