CAIRO — Egypt's top prosecutor requested on Monday the freezing of the foreign assets of ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his family, announced state TV.
Security officials said that the prosecutor-general requested the Foreign Ministry to ask other nations to freeze any assets of Mubarak and his family abroad. The president's local assets were frozen soon after he stepped down, they added.
The freeze applies to Mubarak, his wife, his two sons and two daughters-in-law, they say. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk to the press.
