The charges against Ahmed Shafik, who was also the defeated run-off candidate in Egypt's first free presidential election last year, relate to deals struck in 2005.Shafik, who fled to the United Arab Emirates after losing to Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, was appointed prime minister shortly before Mubarak was overthrown two years ago.
The new charges against Shafik include illegally selling and profiting from the sale of villas belonging to the Airforce Officers' Association, as well as money laundering, the sources said.
