The Economic Criminal Court sentenced former Zamalek Club president Mortada Mansour on Monday to six months in prison and a fine of LE20,000 for insulting and slandering a public employee.
Prosecutors accused Mansour of intentionally slandering the Director General of the Central Auditing Organization Lamia Khairy from April 10 to December 14, 2021.
Mansour used his online accounts to post many accusations against Khairy, which would have harmed her reputation.
The Public Prosecution had charged Mansour with insulting and defaming Khatib and Khatib’s lawyer and legal advisor to Ahly Club Mohamed Othman, and others.
The Ministry Sports announced earlier this year the implementation of the ruling issued by the Administrative Court in Cairo against Mansour.
The court’s ruling aimed to “remove the status” of Mansour after accepting a lawsuit filed by two former members of the Zamalek board of directors and others to demand his removal.
This came after he was imprisoned for a month, on charges of insulting and defaming Al-Ahly Sporting Club President Mahmoud al-Khatib.
Mansour was imprisoned for one month, from February 25 to March 25, on charges of insulting and defaming Khatib.
