Nice work Fadfoud!

Ha Ha! Thanks Fadi, I wasn't expecting such a detailed background. Many thanks.

At least, morals put aside, it shows Sisi isn't an idiot: with so much high-end real estate we will certainly have a very comfortable retirement.

Now, for Ali, it's risky to attack a country leader anywhere, but even more when that guy was head of the intelligence services + attacking the military : I'm pretty sure many are devising what best way to disappear Ali.
Morals are bad for image, but not really a processable crime, so for that reason Ali might remain alive because those claims can only hurt reputations, but not power. (therefore: your paper plane, well done).

Mohamed Ali, 43, is an actor, film producer and real-estate investor who has been working in the construction sector in Egypt for the past 15 years.

He comes from a middle-class family from the Agouza neighborhood in the Giza governorate. His father, once Egypt’s bodybuilding champion and the manager of Egypt's bodybuilding team, also worked as a gold seller in Cairo to support his family.

His family was not wealthy enough to give him a high-quality education, he says, adding that he abandoned a degree in business administration at Cairo University after two years of study and worked in 14 different professions before moving into the construction.

He has never been a member of any political party and denies being an activist. In one of his videos.

Over 15 years, Ali owned a construction company called Amlaak that worked with the Egyptian army’s Engineering Authority to implement mega projects across the country. Many of those projects included building residential homes and palaces for senior military officials, including Sisi who previously served as head of the military-intelligence apparatus and then minister of defense.

In a series of videos posted on Facebook and YouTube since 2 September 2019, Ali began by accusing top army generals of failing to pay him millions of dollars for a number of projects his company built in collaboration with the army.

While demanding to be paid around 200 million Egyptian pounds ($12 million), he revealed the purported budgets of several projects overseen by the army and implemented by his company.

The projects, he said, were assigned directly to his company without feasibility studies or a competitive bidding process.

While his testimonies included revelations about the expenditure of top military officials, his videos about Sisi’s own palatial residences have sparked anger and highlighted a stark contrast between the president's claims that Egyptians “are very poor” and his spending on palaces.

Ali worked with the army long before Sisi became president.

In one video, Ali says that Sisi ordered the building of a new luxury house for his family in the middle-class Hilmiya district in Cairo once he was appointed defense minister by late president Mohamed Morsi in 2012.

The cost of the project, he said, eventually cost 60 million ($6m in 2012).

He says the furnishing of the palace coincided with the Ittihadeya clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents in November 2012 but that Sisi and his wife visited the new house to give feedback on its furnishing on the same day of the violent clashes that month.

After he became president, Sisi allegedly ordered the construction of a new presidential residence in a seaside resort in Alexandria, with a cost of 250 million Egyptian pounds ($15m) despite the existence of an old presidential rest house in the same area.

Other palaces built by Sisi include the new headquarters of the presidency in the new administrative capital and the summer presidential palace currently under construction in the new Alamein city, located 120 km west of Alexandria.
