Gamal and Alaa Mubarak found themselves in trouble once again after Egypt’s court ordered their arrest for alleged stock manipulation. The sons of Egypt’s Former President, Mohamed Hosni Mubarak, alongside three others, are accused of failing to notify the stock market of agreements to acquire majorities in several banks through front companies.
After attending a hearing at the Cairo Criminal Court on Saturday, their arrest has been ordered with another hearing set for October 20. Following the court ruling, Alaa Mubarak took to Twitter to praise God and confirm that the truth will be unveiled and thanked his supporters.
الحمد والشكر لله علي كل حال ، امر بحبسنا مرة اخري في قضية البورصة وان شاء الله وبأذن المولي عز وجل ستظهر الحقيقة في يوم طالما ربنا موجود ، شكرًا لكل من ساندنا ووقف بجانبنا . يارب ?
