Mubarak’s Top Aide Will Not Be Released

A Cairo Criminal Court has ruled that Zakaria Azmi (pictured here) can be detained for another 30 days pending further investigation into his personal finances as requested by the public prosecutor in order to not tamper with the course of investigations or questioning of witnesses.

Mr. Azmi was the Presidential Chief of Staff to former President Hosni Mubarak for 22 years and is currently under investigation for illegally using his position for profit.
