Court upholds sentence against Morsi PM

30 September 2013, 15:51

Cairo - A Cairo appeals court on Monday upheld a one-year sentence handed to former Egyptian premier Hisham Kandil, in the latest blow to ousted president Mohamed Morsi's inner circle.

Kandil is accused of failing to execute a court ruling ordering the annulment of a public company's sale and the reinstatement of its employees.

An unpopular prime minister, Kandil has kept a low profile since Morsi's overthrow by the army on 3 July.

"There will be an order for his arrest and he will have to serve his sentence," a security official said.

Earlier this month, prosecutors ordered the freezing of Kandil's assets and he was prevented from leaving the country pending the investigation.

Egypt's army-installed authorities have launched a massive crackdown on Islamists that has seen hundreds killed and over 2 000 jailed.

Morsi, Egypt's first elected president, is himself in jail, as is the leadership of his Muslim Brotherhood movement.
