Last month, London and Toronto-listed Egyptian gold mining company, Centamin, was  ordered by the state’s Administrative Court to relinquish its Sukari concession on the Red Sea. A month before, the Court ruled illegal the acquisition by Mexico’s CEMEX of cement producer Assiut, ordering it be “returned to the people of Egypt”. In both cases the companies were found to have “robbed” the country of its legally-entitled revenues. Where then does this leave the “Arab Spring” which sprung the revolutionary movements of early 2011?
