Mubarak Sons Could Face Additional Charges

CAIRO, Aug. 11 (UPI) — Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, sons of deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, could face three new corruption charges, officials said.

Prosecutors previously interrogated the two over claims they manipulated Egypt’s stock exchange and made money from the country’s debt settlement, al-Masry al-Youm reported.

The brothers are now in Tora Prison, awaiting a corruption trial along with their father, who is also charged in the deaths of protesters calling for his ouster. If new charges were filed, they would be heard in a separate case, prosecutors said.

Investigators also said the appointment of Gamal Mubarak to the board of the Arab African Bank is a violation of the law.

A senior judicial official told al-Masry al-Youm prosecutors would investigate other officials implicated in the potential new charges, including former Prime Minister Atef Ebeid, former Deputy Prime Minister Youssef Wali, former Finance Minister Youssef Boutros-Ghali and former Agriculture Minister Amin Abaza.
