Mubarak waiver of his property and trying to be free

The Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, in custody since last April 13 for illicit enrichment, has given up all their assets to achieve their release, according to the state newspaper "Al Ahram." The digital edition of the newspaper said, citing unnamed sources, that the exmandatario today signed a document that transfers its assets and properties in Egypt to the public coffers.

The sources said that with this resignation the president, who is provisionally in the hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh last month after suffering a heart attack, seeks to achieve his release. This news coincides with the announcement that Mubarak will soon direct a message to the nation to apologize to the Egyptian people and publicly renounce their property, according to judicial sources confirmed.

It also produces the same day his wife Suzanne Thabet has been released on bail after having delivered a portion of their assets to government coffers. Enrichment department of the Ministry of Justice ordered his release after returning 20 million Egyptian pounds (about 3,350,000 U.S. dollars) and a villa in the affluent Cairo neighborhood of Helipolis.

Thabet is entered with Mubarak in Sharm el Sheikh hospital for a heart attack suffered last day 13 to learn that the Ministry of Justice had issued an order for her pre-trial detention of 15 days for alleged unjust enrichment. Mubarak, whose order of detention has been extended several times, is accused of abuse of power and illicit enrichment, and to be involved in the attack on protesters during the revolution that ended with his resignation from the Presidency on 11 February.

Mubarak's sons and Thabet, Alaa and Gamal, are also detained as a precautionary measure since last April 13 in the Tora prison, accused of the same crimes.
