Gamal Mubarak to Appear Before Egyptian Panel on Corruption

Gamal Mubarak, son of the former Egyptian President Hosni and the once-presumed heir to his father’s rule, has been summoned to appear before an Egyptian panel by the country’s newly created anti-corruption body in order to explain the sudden growth in his personal wealth.

Gamal Mubarak is not alone either – he is the third person from his father’s former regime to be called up recently by the anti-corruption body to be brought before the panel. Hosni Mubarak’s former Chief of Staff, Zakaria Azmi, and the former Interior Minister are also suspected of corruption, with the former planned to appear before the panel this Friday.

While Hosni Mubarak is currently under house arrest at the Red Sea town of Sharm-el-Sheikh, the assets of his wife, Suzannea, his two sons Alaa and Gamal, and their wives have been frozen under the request of the new Prosecutor General Abdul Majid Mahmud.
