CAIRO, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Egyptian prosecutors say a former prime minister and his three daughters will be tried for allegedly embezzling public funds by illegally seizing land.
Officials said 10 alleged accomplices will also be tried.
Ahram Online reported Ahmed Shafiq, who was prime minister for about five weeks in 2011 before President Hosni Mubarak was ousted, and his daughters allegedly seized land that held fish farms. Shafiq and his daughters then illegally allocated it to the Pilots' Association for Land Development, which Shafiq headed.
Shafiq is a former air force commander and left Egypt after losing a presidential race to Mohamed Morsi last June, Ahram Online said.
