Gamal Mubarak, the son of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, is being investigated for allegedly taking five percent of the money made from natural gas sales to Israel to his own personal account, Egyptian newspaper al-Masri al-Youm reported on Saturday.
According to the report, Mubarak also used his influence to obtain five percent of the revenues for businessman Hussein Salem.
Mubarak has denied the allegations, saying "I have no bearing on the issue of gas from near or far and did not get a commission."
