The public prosecution is currently considering reconciliation requests submitted by businessmen affiliated with the Mubarak regime, said spokesperson Mostafa Deweidar on Monday evening.
Committees composed of attorney generals and prosecution deputies are currently going over the requests.
Deweidar denied rumors that a public prosecution delegation had travelled abroad to solicit the reconciliations with former regime members.
He added that requests for reconciliation have been submitted by figures including fugitive Hussein Salem, and others accused of financial corruption in the state-owned press institutions Al-Ahram and Al-Akhbar.
