Mubarak’s Last Premier Barred From Accessing His Assets
The Egyptian government barred Ahmed Shafik, who served as ousted President Hosni Mubarak’s last premier, from accessing his assets, the Justice Ministry said today in a faxed statement. The decision, announced by Deputy Justice Minister Yehya Galal, also affects Shafik’s three daughters, the statement said.
Shafik, who left Egypt after narrowly losing the presidential run-off race to Islamist Mohamed Mursi earlier this year, is being investigated on a number of corruption-related charges.
