Egypt court convicted ex-tourism minister of corruption
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On May 10, 2011, an Egyptian criminal court convicted the country's former tourism minister, Zoheir Garranah, of corruption. Garranah was found to have sold public land in the Red Sea province below market value to two businessmen, which the court said was illegally allocating public land to private developers. Garranah is the second-highest-ranking state official to be found guilty of corruption since former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was forced from office in February 2011. Other officials, including cabinet members and businessmen, have also been detained on allegations of corruption as well.
