Egyptian court sentences Mohamed Ali to three years on tax evasion charges

A court has sentenced army contractor-turned-political dissident Mohamed Ali to three years in prison on charges of tax evasion, and ordered him to pay a fine of EGP 711k and an equal amount in due taxes, reports Masrawy. Ali was referred to a criminal court in December after an investigation concluded he had avoided paying VAT by misrepresenting tax records. He is currently in self-imposed exile in Spain.
