Ex-officials assets still unfrozen

The agency responsible says that the ‎shares and stock market accounts of Fathi Sorour, Safwat ‎Al-Sherif and Zakria ‎Azmi have not yet been blocked

MENA, Saturday 2 Apr 2011

Mohamed Abdul-Salam, chairman of Misr for Central Clearing, Depository and Registry ‎‎(MCDR), says the company hasn’t yet been notified of a ministerial decree ‎freezing the ‎shares and stock market accounts owned by ex-parliament ‎chief Fathi Sorour, former ‎Shura Council head Safwat ‎El-Sherif and chief of the presidential ‎administration Zakria ‎Azmi. ‎
The trio and their wives have already been prohibited from leaving the country, while their ‎assets are widely expected to be frozen soon amid incessant calls for all the cronies of the ‎previous regime to be brought to justice.‎

Abdul-Salam told MENA that MCDR would freeze the accounts of any trader upon receiving ‎an official notification from the attorney general, revealing that 175 have had their ‎accounts put on hold, including those of ex-President Hosni Mubarak, his family members, ‎former ministers and businessmen.
