Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak claimed that Israel was forced to pay prices three-times above market value. "We stopped exporting for sometime until we pushed them to raise the price from $1 to $3 and to allow us to review the price every three years," Mubarak told investigator Mustafa Suleiman who questioned him over the natural gas treaty with Israel. "They agreed with great difficulty to both conditions."

Egyptian daily Youm7 published the transcript of the interrogation on Friday. Mubarak was questioned at the Sharm e-Sheikh hospital. He was questioned again in late April and on May 10 about the gas contract.
