The legal representative of the family of the Egyptian former president Hosni Mubarak has issued a statement to Al-Masry Al-Youm, an independent newspaper, saying "the family has recently been subject to different attempts to discredit and damage the reputation of the former president. These false accusations have been circulated by the media without any double checking on their accuracy, accordingly the family had to release the following:

"First: the news reports of the existence of four bank accounts with huge amounts under the control and at the disposal of Suzanne Thabet, wife of the former president, are totally false. Those accounts are for charity use and her only connection to those accounts is the right to sign them off as the wife of the president of Egypt, nothing more. Moreover, the presidential office oversees those accounts. Once the president stepped down, the Central Bank was informed to freeze the accounts.

"Second: with reference to what has been circulated regarding the Library of Alexandria accounts, no one but the president of Egypt has the right to sign on these accounts and he has not delegated this right to anyone. Accordingly, everything that has been written about them is false, especially since the presidential office has informed the Central Bank about them and those accounts were frozen the day the president stepped down.

"Third: with reference to has been reported about the existence of several bank accounts under the names of the ousted president's sons, Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, we assure you that they are false and they have far less money."
Moreover, the legal representative added that the Mubarak family asks for all the newspapers and the media outlets to be more careful about the accuracy of what they they publish.

what about the discrete accounts
No mention of the USD70 billion of the president. They are not money. May be properties, real estates, stocks and bonds mostly abroad. These accounts mentioned in the statement are not the only accounts the gang has. there are much more. Transparency is needed even in publishing the gang,s statement.

ex-President Mubarak
It is disgusting to note that the media is indulging in unrestrained kite-flying regarding the ex-President.Ungratefulness is an unpardonable crime and sin.

Put him in Jail for life
This big thug and thief should have been already in jail. What the deal here? He is the biggest thief who helped the other thieves scape with stolen money. Money stolen from hardworking Egyptian poo people. Put this man in Jail Mr. Attorney General. We are Egyptian living abroad and we are watching what is going on in Egypt. You should request the maximum jail sentences for all thieves who stole and starve poor Egyptian people. Shame on them all. They are not Egyptians, but thieves, thugs, and criminals. Make them suffer as they made all honest Egyptians suffered. Egyptian Immigrant M. El Amir
