PUA’s Faculty of Legal Studies and International Relations organized a seminar on the crimes of bribing civil servants and embezzlement of public moneys. The seminar began by defining the civil servant as mentioned in the Administrative Code and its broader definition in the Penal Code under the provisions of Article No. 222 regarding civil servants, bribing false witnesses and doctors, and the extent to which penal Articles Nos. 103-107, which are related to bribery, apply to them.


The seminar also showed the difference between the crime of embezzlement and the misappropriation of public moneys, and the crimes of misappropriation of public moneys or violating public interest, such as bribery, embezzlement, and misappropriation. Furthermore, the seminar defined who a civil servant is, as it is the presumed condition for crimes of public moneys, and showed a study of the material and moral elements in crimes of bribery, embezzlement, and misappropriation, and their respective penalties, whether standard or aggravated.
