Event description

Description

Mohamed Ahmed will illustrate and discuss the position of Egypt towards corruption. It will start with a brief introduction of the Egyptian legal system and a quick illustration of Anti-corruption Legislation and corruption crimes in Egypt. Then it will consider the various bodies involving in fighting corruption and the efforts of prosecutors to fight corruption and the obstacles. The seminar will conclude with an analysis of the current situation and of what might happen in the future.

Mohamed Ahmed is a senior Prosecutor at the Egyptian Attorney General’s office since his promotion from Giza District Attorney’s office where he was a junior prosecutor from 2006 to 2013. He was honoured twice from two previous Attorneys-General: first, in 2007, as one of the top prosecutors in the early prosecutors’ training, and then as an exemplary prosecutor all over the Egyptian Public Prosecution. His career has had a strong focus on Economic and corruption crimes, even since he was a junior prosecutor in several District Attorney’s offices across Egypt. He started dealing exclusively with corruption crimes since 2012 when he became the youngest director of Public Funds Prosecution in Giza District Attorney’s office. Now, he is a senior prosecutor in the Supreme Public Funds Prosecution office at the Attorney-General’s office, where he has investigated many cases relating to the corruption of the former president of Egypt Mubarak and his regime and entourage. Currently, he is taking an LLM at Kingston University London to further enhance his career.
