Hala Zayed’s son denies corruption accusations in social media post

Health Minister Hala Zayed’s son has come forward on social media to deny allegations that he was involved of corruption.

TV presenter Amr Adeeb on Monday highlighted the post on a segment of his “Al-Hekaya” show, and defended Zayed by stating she was not accused of any corruption herself.

The minister’s son wrote in the post attributed to him on social media: “I am Engineer Saif, son of Dr. Hala Zayed, Minister of Health and Population, and I want to say that God is sufficient for me, and He’s my best disposer in all the allegations and slander, spread by people, which I have nothing to do with.”

Judicial sources revealed the names of the  four defendants involved in the Ministry of Health bribery case, whom the top prosecutor referred to a criminal trial – including Health Minister Hala Zayed’s ex-husband.

Zayed requested a leave after the case was revealed.

The four defendants are: Mohamed Abdel Meguid Mohamed, Malik al-Sayyed Attia Ibrahim al-Fayoumy, Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed Behairy and Hussam Eddin Abdallah Fouda.

On Wednesday, top prosecutor Hamada al-Sawy referred the defendants to criminal trial.

The first of them was accused of ordering LE5.6 million as a bribe from the owners of a private hospital through two other defendants, in return for using his influence to prevent the closure of the unlicensed private hospital.

The defendants prepared a forged report that proves the absence of any irregularities in the hospital. The fourth accused was charged with forging the report himself.
