Egypt’s Prosecutor Seeks Mubarak Loot

Egypt’s public prosecutor on Monday told the foreign ministry to seek a freeze on the foreign assets of Hosni Mubarak and his family, the first sign that the former president would be held to account by the military leadership to whom he handed power.

The prosecutor said in a statement he had asked the foreign ministry to use diplomatic channels to request a freeze on foreign assets and accounts held by Mubarak, his wife Suzanne and his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, together with their wives.

A legal representative for Mubarak denied media reports that the former president had amassed enormous wealth in office, the official MENA news agency reported Sunday.
