Mubarak-era prime minister Ahmed Shafiq on Sunday was referred to criminal court to face charges of "profiteering and facilitating the [illegal] acquisition of state funds," according to a report by Egypt's al Ahram newspaper.

Shafiq lost to Mohamed Morsi in Egypt's presidential run-off vote in May.
