EU source: Mubaraks' assets NOT on freezing list

Post by Strawberry on Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:55 am

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not requested that the assets of ousted president Hosni Mubarak nor any of his family members be frozen in European Union (EU) states, an EU source revealed.

On Wednesday, the ministry announced it had referred requests to freeze the assets of several former officials to the country's embassies in European states, as well as other western and Arab states.

The crackdown on ex-officials and former ministers came after 18 days of pro-democracy protests led to Mubarak's resignation after 30 years in power.

The EU source, who asked to remain anonymous, said the list includes Ahmed Ezz, the resigned organization secretary of the previously-ruling National Democratic Party; Rachid Mohamed Rachid, former trade minister; Ahmed al-Maghraby, former housing minister; Habib al-Adly, former interior minister; and Zuheir Garana, former tourism minister.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has asked the European Union to freeze the assets of several former Egyptian officials. These include: Ahmed Ezz, former organization secretary for the ruling National Democratic Party; Ahmed Nazif, former prime minister; Zuheir Garrana, former minister of tourism; Ahmed al-Maghraby, former minister of housing; Rachid Mohamed Rachid, former minister of trade and industry; and Anas al-Fiqy, former minister of information.

The move comes in accordance with the United Nations Convention against Corruption, to which Egypt is signatory.
