Presidential palace

Prosecutor General Abdel Megid Mahmoud is carrying on with investigations into the alleged ‎looting of presidential palaces during the security vacuum created by the start of the January 25 Revolution.‎
    
A fact-finding committee, which was formed upon the request of the Supreme Council ‎of the Armed Forces (SCAF), said no money or valuable gifts were found at any of the ‎eight presidential palaces in Egypt.

However, the committee members found a set of medals that was dedicated to deposed ‎president Hosni Mubarak by several countries. The committee also found about LE20,000 worth of gold ‎jewelry, presumably belong to his wife Suzanne.‎

‎ No documents listing the possessions of the Mubaraks have been found. ‎

Zakaria Azmi, the former chief of presidential staff, and Major General Gamal Abdel ‎Aziz, the ex-secretary of Mubarak, were responsible for opening safes and wardrobes in ‎the palaces.   ‎

Ahram daily learned that an inventory committee will be formed in an attempt to list the ‎missing items.
