Petition Launched to Freeze Assets of Mubarak and His Henchmen
Following the ousting of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his corrupt regime which was swept from power by the People’s Revolution scandals have emerged concerning his stashed away assets totalling up to $70 billion worldwide.
A petition has been launched calling on all to act now or else the corrupt Mubarak could take billions of stolen public money with him.
Switzerland has already frozen his finances, and some EU leaders have offered to help. The petition states that a massive outcry will succeed in getting decisive global action to stop the Mubarak fortune from disappearing.
The petition aimed to reach 500, 000 before Friday to be delivered to the G20 meeting cites:
"We call on you to immediately freeze any assets of the former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, his family, and his circle of friends and advisers — so they can be investigated and returned to the Egyptian people; and to provide cooperation and assistance to Egyptian authorities under Article 51 of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption"
