CAIRO – 27 December 2017: Beheira governorate restored 43,000 acres belonging to a national company that were illegally exploited, Governor of Beheira Nadia Abdo said Wednesday.

During the meeting of Parliament’s Local Administration Committee, the governor added that those lands will be legally returned to establish micro, small and medium enterprises.

The meeting was held to discuss a briefing request submitted by a parliamentarian on the land belonging to a national textile company and being illegally used for personal purposes rather than for the public’s interest.

“The Engineering Authority will establish micro, small and medium enterprises on an area of 500 sqm per company to help youth,” Abdo pointed out.

There are campaigns against encroachment on state lands. Eighty-eight cases of encroachment have been settled legally after their owners paid fines totaling LE 240 million ($13 million) to the General Authority for Agricultural Development.

The state campaign against squatters started in early May after President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi ordered the army and police to investigate and reclaim all illegally acquired state lands. His statement came during the Youth Conference in Ismailia on April 27.
