Former Tamweel CEO Sentenced to Jail


Maktoob Business reports that a local court sentenced Adel Shirawi, former CEO, and three other officials to jail terms ranging from three to one years for financial crimes during their tenors at Tamweel.  Mr. Shirawi's sentence also includes a fine and the repayment of funds.

As noted, lawyers for three of the convicted parties (Messrs. Shirawi, Abdul Razak, and Khalthoum) said they would appeal the sentence.  There was no statement regarding the fourth party (Abdullah Nasser, former Deputy CEO), but presumably, he is appealing as well.
