The Illicit Gains Authority on Sunday requested that Interpol arrest a pro-Mubarak journalist who has fled to the United Arab Emirates.

The authority has forbidden Samir Ragab, former chairman of the Al-Tahrir Newspaper and Publishing House, and his family from liquidating his property, banned Ragab from travel and placed his name on Egypt’s watch list.

The Cairo Court of Appeals had previously approved the authority’s request to disclose Ragab’s secret bank accounts, as an investigation reportedly found that he possesses a large fortune incommensurate with his reported sources of income.
