Mubarak Family Assets Frozen

State-run media reported on Monday that Egyptian authorities have frozen the assets of former President Hosni Mubarak, his wife, his two sons, and their wives. Ten days after the president resigned from power, Egypt’s attorney general requested the action, prompted by complaints from Egypt's citizens. Swiss officials also reported on Monday that they have made moves to freeze any assets in Switzerland's banks that might belong to Mubarak or his family in order "to avoid any risk of embezzlement of Egyptian state property." Mubarak's attorney said on Sunday that media sources in Egypt and elsewhere were publishing false information about the former president's wealth, attempting "to cause damage to his reputation and his integrity." Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron is holding talks in Cairo, the highest-ranking foreign leader to visit the country since the revolution.
