Hisham Genena (also spelled Geneina or Genina) is an Egyptian former policeman and judge. He was head of the Egyptian Central Auditing Organization from 2012 to 2016.
Hisham Genena was Egypt's top corruption official until he was fired after he exposed vast government corruption.
In January 2018 Hisham Genena supported Sami Anan's bid to contest Abdel Fatah al-Sisi in the 2018 Egyptian presidential election. On 27 January Genena was attacked by three unidentified men outside his home. After Anan was arrested, Genena told the Huffington Post that he had access to documents showing that army leaders played a role in encouraging social unrest after the Egyptian revolution of 2011, and threatened to release these documents if Anan's life was threatened. On 12 February Genena was arrested, and later also Moataz Wadnan, the journalist who had interviewed him.
In April 2018, he was sentenced to 5 years in prison for "insulting the military", a sentence which was upheld in March 2019.
