Prosecution prolongs detention of Mubarak sons pending investigation

Egypt’s Public Prosecution on Tuesday renewed the detention order for Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, sons of former President Hosni Mubarak, for an additional 15 days pending investigation. The Mubarak sons are currently being questioned at Tora prison.

According to a statement by the attorney general, which was published Tuesday afternoon on its official Facebook page, "members of the attorney general’s office went to Tora prison to conduct investigations with both Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, where they were questioned in the presence of their lawyer."

The statement explained that the investigations involved charges relating to corrupt gas exports to Israel, forced partnerships with some foreign companies operating in Egypt, and privatization of public sector companies.

Gamal and Alaa Mubarak are being detained pending investigation into illegal accumulation of wealth.
