Mubarak's wealth came from gas exports to Israel, arms deals: Justice Minister

Cairo , Sun, 01 May 2011 ANI

Cairo, May 1 (ANI): Egypt's Justice Minister Mohammed el-Guindi has said ousted President Hosni Mubarak gathered his wealth from gas exports to Israel through a company owned by his friend, and arms deals.


He said Mubarak could face the death penalty if he is convicted of ordering the shooting of protesters during the uprisings that forced him out of power.


"Certainly, if convicted for the crime of killing protesters, it could result in the death sentence," the Daily Mail quoted el-Guindi, as saying.


Mubarak would be investigated at the Sharm el-Sheikh Hospital in the next few days, the minister said, adding that the only person capable of pardoning Mubarak would be the new president.


"If I were the president, I will not pardon him for killing 800 martyrs," el-Guindi said.


He also stressed that the ousted leader's two sons and wife are also facing allegations of corruption.


Former First Lady Suzanne Mubarak would reportedly be questioned for the first time in a few days over her illicit amassing of wealth. (ANI)
