Portrait Hosni Mubarak

During his 30-year rule, Mubarak, his family and his close circle of advisers are alleged to have enriched themselves through partnerships in powerful Egyptian companies and stashed a large part of this wealth abroad, with media sources estimating this fortune at up to US$70 billion. Mubarak and his sons, Gamal Mubrarak and Alaa Mubarak, served three-year jail sentences on charges of embezzlement after the 2011 revolution and were ordered to pay a $17.5 million fine. In March 2017, Hosni Mubarak was released from detention after being acquitted of charges of killing protesters during the revolution, but remains under investigation for alleged corruption. He is said to reside in his private family residence in Cairo’s upscale district of Heliopolis. 1, 2
