Mubarak, wife interrogated over corruption

This would be the first time Mubarak`s wife, Suzanne, faced interrogation.



Cairo: Egypt`s government says deposed President Hosni Mubarak and his wife have been questioned over suspicions they illegally amassed vast wealth.

Mubarak has been questioned several times, but this would be the first time his wife, Suzanne, faced interrogation.

A Justice Ministry statement said interrogators headed to the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on Thursday to question the couple about corruption and misuse of power.

A report by a financial oversight body said that Mubarak and his family had numerous bank accounts in foreign and local currencies, luxury apartments and palaces and valuable land holdings. Some estimate his fortune in the tens of billions of dollars.

Mubarak denies the allegations.

Mubarak also faces charges over deaths of protesters during the popular uprising that toppled him Feb. 11.
