Wives of Alaa and Gamal Mubarak called for investigation

The Illicit Gains Authority (IGA) decided on Thursday to summon Heidy Rasekh and Khadiga al-Gammal, the wives of ousted President Mubarak’s sons Alaa and Gamal, for investigation on Tuesday, according to judicial sources.

The IGA will question Rasekh and al-Gammal on their husbands’ wealth, which preliminary investigations have suggested were partly acquired through illegal means.

Sources added that the two women will be asked whether Alaa or Gamal, who are currently being held in Tora prison, had recorded any of their properties under the wives’ names.

Authorities revealed on Monday that the Mubaraks’ wealth had increased in a way that was inconsistent with their official incomes during Hosni Mubarak’s rule, suggesting profiteering and the abuse of their positions of influence.
