Egypt: Suzanne Mubarak detained in corruption probe Mrs Mubarak's husband had already been detained by investigators Continue reading the main story Egypt's Revolution Communal conflict Little sympathy for Mubarak family Second chance? Dismantling state security The wife of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been detained for 15 days pending further investigations into corruption allegations, the state news agency reports. Suzanne Mubarak will be held in a Cairo prison, Egypt's Mena news agency says. Mrs Mubarak, 70, and her husband have been questioned over allegations of "illegal acquisition of wealth". The former president, who held power for 30 years, stepped down in February after weeks of protests. He has since been detained by Egypt's Illicit Gains Authority, on charges he abused his position to illegally acquire wealth. He is also accused of involvement in the killings of anti-regime protesters. The 83-year-old is currently under arrest in a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, after suffering heart problems. His detention was extended by 15 days early on Friday morning. The military council which has been in power since Mr Mubarak stepped down has vowed to bring to justice all those accused of corruption. The former president, his wife, their two sons Alaa and Gamal and their wives have been banned from travel and had their assets frozen by general prosecutor Abdel Magid Mahmud. More than 20 ministers and businessmen linked to Mr Mubarak's regime have been detained since his departure from office. Last week, former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly was sentenced to 12 years in jail on charges of money-laundering and profiteering. Adly also faces separate charges of ordering troops to fire on demonstrators. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
