(Israel Twitter)Two former Egyptian ministers are to face trial for selling natural gas to Israel at a low price, judicial sources said on Saturday.
Sameh Fahmi and Mahmud Latif are accused of costing the state 714 million dollars in losses because of the deal, the sources said.
Five oil ministry officials will also stand trial on the same charges.
Fahmi and Latif, who was briefly oil minister earlier this year, are already in custody.
They are accused of "exporting gas to Israel at a price lower than international prices, harming public finances," the sources said.
