Egypt’s attorney general has ordered a freeze on the assets of former president Hosni Mubarak, his wife Suzanne, and his sons Gamal and Alaa, Egyptian TV said Monday.
The move is part of ongoing investigations into charges against several senior officials for alleged ill-gotten wealth and plundering of public funds.
Mubarak stepped down on February 11 after 18 days of nationwide protests.
In recent weeks, Egypt has also frozen the assets of ex-ministers and National Democratic Party (NDP) leaders, some of whom have been imprisoned on corruption charges.
Egypt’s request last week to the European Union for a freeze on the assets of the country’s former ruling elite did not include Mubarak or his family.
