Egypt’s Mursi Dismisses Environment Adviser, Ahram Gate Reports

Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi has dismissed his environmental affairs adviser, the state-run Ahram Gate website reported, citing spokesman Yasser Ali.

Ali didn’t provide a reason, it said. The adviser, Khaled Elmeddin, a member of the Salafi Nour Party, told Ahram Gate he had not been officially informed of the move, and had contacted the presidency although “no one answered” him.

Elmeddin said he was awaiting clarification on a supervisory body’s report that maintains he abused his office for personal gains, the news website reported.

“Maybe they believe that my mere efforts and contacts with some of the ministers and officials to solve the problems facing this country and the citizens” are tantamount to abusing the post, he said.

Officials at Mursi's office were not immediately available for comment.
