CAIRO — Egypt’s top prosecutor wants the former
president’s assets abroad frozen.
The prosecutor, Abdel Meguid
Mahmoud, has requested that Egyptian officials freeze the domestic assets of
ousted President Hosni Mubarak, 82, and his family.
In addition, Mahmoud requested that
Egypt’s foreign minister call on other nations to freeze Mubarak’s assets
abroad, security officials said.
The international freeze would apply to
Mubarak, his wife Suzanne, his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, and their wives.
Earlier this month, Mahmoud froze
the assets of several former high-ranking Egyptian officials and banned them
from leaving the country.
