The fortune of ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has been estimated at $145 million deposited in the Alexandria Library accounts at the National Egyptian Bank and a villa in Sharm El-Sheikh worth LE36 million, the Illicit Gains Authority said in a statement today.

The statement goes on to put that of his wife, Suzanne Thabet Mubarak at LE20 million and a villa in Heliopolis.

The authority on Thursday resumed questioning the ousted president and his wife on charges of illegal profiteering.

The authority's head, Essam El-Gohary who issued the statement, said that media reports estimating their fortune at billions of dollars are untrue and have “triggered people’s anger and incited public opinion without proof.”

He added, however, that by using their postion of power and influence, Mubarak and his wife accrued a wealth greater than their incomes.

El-Gohari added that Mubarak denied withdrawing money from the Alexandria bank account but admitted it is in his name. He also admitted to not informing the library's board of trustees of account's existence, for the sake of preserving it.

No doubt $145 million is a lot of money. Many top footballers have accumulated assets in excess of this amount over periods of much less than 30 years.

What about Mubarak's foreign holdings
What about Mubarak's Swiss accounts? What happened to the committee formed to seek Mubarak's holdings overseas? I think Essam El-Gohary and the attorney general must be investigated for delaying the Mubarak's investigation and for not imprisoning Mubarak until now. This is impacting tourism the Egyptian economy.
