President of the Audit Bureau, Khaled Shakshak, recommended preventing officials of the General Electricity Company from traveling, in a file containing the Bureau’s investigations regarding the causes of long hours of power outages.
According to the Bureau, the results of the investigation conducted and referred to the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the matter includes willful negligence that amounts to criminal offenses.
