CAIRO - 8 September 2018: The Administrative Control Authority (ACA) unveiled and deterred corruption cases in different public institutions over the month of September preserving millions of pounds, facilitating the work of investors, and ensuring fair competition.

The ACA eliminated obstacles facing Sumitomo Corporation to establish and issue licenses at its prospective factory in 6th of October industrial zone, which would lead to pumping LE 1 billion in investment and creating 2,000 jobs.

In terms of criminal cases and tariff evasion, ACA recovered LE 56.14 million. As for crime prevention, the agency foiled flawed procedures for tenders by public companies that could result in corruption suspicions and losses worth LE 2.5 million for not following laws and regulations.

Ensuring integrity in the public sector, ACA took legal action against 22 employees for financial breaches and administrative mischief. Thirteen employees were referred to the public and administrative prosecutions, three were transferred to different institutions, two were dismissed, three resigned, and one was referred to Illicit Gains Authority.
