Cairo Appeals Court approved on Wednesday measures to uncover details of secret accounts in the name of Suzanne Thabet, the wife of Egypt's ousted president, which were used to receive donations made to the Bibleotheca Alexandrina.
The court's president, Eid Suweilam, granted permission to the illicit gains services to seek information about accounts and deposits used to receive donations for the library at banks nation-wide. He also authorized measures to shed light on Thabet's dealings with international banks, as well as the accounts for Mohamed Alaa Mubarak, a charitable organization named after Mubarak's deceased grandson.
Following the 25 January revolution, which led to the resignation of former President Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian authorities imposed travel bans and ordered the freezing of assets belonging to several ex-ministers, government officials and businessmen, some of whom are now being prosecuted over corruption charges.
