CAIRO: Head of the Third District of Cairo’s upscale Fifth Settlement has been charged with bribery after he was caught in film accepting 20,000 EGP ($2,550,) from a sanitation company, Youm7 reported Sunday.

Investigations revealed that the defendant agreed with the sanitation company to receive a monthly bribe of 10,000 EGP to submit reports to Cairo City Council claiming the company delivers “high standards” of commitment and sanitation, so its contract could easily be renewed, according to Youm7.

The defendant was caught by camera at a restaurant in Cairo accepting the bribe from two officials from the sanitation company.

He will be faced with the film in a prosecution interrogation Sunday.

In December, four policemen were ordered jailed pending investigations over bribery, after allegedly threatening undeserved traffic tickets to drivers in the Fifth Settlement.

The Police Traffic discreetly filmed some of the officers accepting bribes from drivers.
