    Egypt: Hosni Mubarak to be quizzed over deaths

    [​IMG]

    Mr Mubarak said he had been given 'great pain' by allegations of corruption
    Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been summoned by the state prosecutor for questioning over alleged corruption and killings of protesters.

    The announcement came shortly after Mr Mubarak made his first statement since he was ousted two months ago, denying accusations of corruption.
    The former leader said he had the right to defend his reputation and denied having any assets in foreign countries.

    Mr Mubarak's sons Gamal and Alaa have been summoned for questioning as well.
    The prosecutor-general said Mr Mubarak's statement, broadcast on al-Arabiya TV, would not affect the inquiry.
    On Friday, Cairo's Tahrir Square once again filled with demonstrators calling for Mr Mubarak and his family to be tried for corruption.

    At least one person was killed and dozens were injured when troops moved in to clear the square. The injured suffered gunshot wounds but the army denied using live rounds.
    Protesters and anti-corruption campaigners have been pressing for an investigation into the Mubarak family's assets, put at anywhere from $1bn to $70bn (£616m-£43bn).
    Correspondents say protesters have become impatient with the slow pace of change pursued by the army council which replaced Mr Mubarak after he stood down on 11 February.
    'Great pain'
    Mr Mubarak resigned on 11 February after 18 days of anti-government protests in which at least 365 people died.
    "I reserve my legal rights toward whoever tried to ruin my and my family's reputation”
    End Quote Hosni Mubarak Former Egyptian president
    He fled to his villa in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, where he and his family have been under house arrest.

    They have been banned from leaving the country and their assets have been frozen. The ban also applies to Mr Mubarak's sons and their wives.
    Mr Mubarak made an audio recording of his speech on Saturday in the wake of the latest protests. It was broadcast by al-Arabiya TV on Sunday.
    "I have been in great pain because of the unjust campaigns and untrue allegations targeting myself and my family," he said.

    "They aim to tarnish my reputation and discredit my integrity, my stance, my political and military history during which I worked hard for Egypt and its people in peace and war."
    Mr Mubarak, 82, is believed to be in poor health, though his aides have denied this.

    Legal threat
    Mr Mubarak said he was willing to co-operate in any investigation to prove that he did not own any property abroad or hold foreign bank accounts.
    He said he would authorise the prosecutor-general "in writing to allow him to contact, through the foreign ministry, all countries in the world to prove to them... that their former president only owns domestically, according to previous financial disclosure."

    But he warned of legal action if he considered himself defamed, saying: "I reserve my legal rights toward whoever tried to ruin my and my family's reputation."
    Former Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif has also been detained for 15 days.
    Prosecutors want to question him about the misuse of public funds.
    Egypt has already requested a number of governments to freeze the overseas assets of the Mubarak family.

    Three Mubarak-era ministers, including former interior minister Habib el-Adly, have already been charged with corruption.

    Aliyekuwa rais wa Misri Hosni Mubarak ametakiwa kufika mbele ya mwendesha mashtaka mwandamizi wa serikali kuhojiwa juu ya madai ya ufisadi na mauaji ya waandamanaji.

    Tangazo hilo limejiri muda mfupi baada ya Bwana Mubarak kutoa taarifa yake ya kwanza tangu kuondolewa madarakani miezi miwili iliopita,akikanusha madai ya ufisadi.

    Kiongozi huyo wa zamani amesema ana haki ya kutetea heshima yake na akakanusha kuwa na mali yoyote katika nchi za kigeni.

    Watoto wa Mubarak Gamal na Alaa pia wametakiwa kufika kwa mahojiano.

    Mwendesha mashtaka mwandamizi amesema taarifa ya Mubarak, haitoathiri kwa vyovyote uchunguzi huo.

    Siku ya Ijumaa,eneo la Tahrir mjini Cairo lilikuwa na waandamanaji wakitaka Bwana Mubarak na jamii yake kushtakiwa kwa ufisadi.

    Mtu mmoja aliuawa na wengine kadhaa kujeruhiwa wakati maafisa wa usalama walipoingia kufukuza walioandamana.Walikuwa na majeraha ya risasi lakini jeshi lilikanusha kutumia risasi za moto.

    Waandamanaji na wanaharakati wanaopinga ufisadi wamekuwa wakishinikiza kufanyiwa uchunguzi mali za familia ya Mubarak,zinazosemekana kuwa kati ya $1bn hadi $70bn.
