Helping Egypt's entrepreneurs


More than 20 ministers and businessmen linked to the old regime of Hosni Mubarak have been detained since the president left power.

This month saw the first trial of an official from his regime when former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly was jailed for 12 years on charges of money-laundering and profiteering.

The interim government is keen to show people that it is serious about dealing with the past but there is concern that this push to punish the old regime could spook the country's entrepreneurs as the country tries to pick itself up.
