Prosecutors discard complaint over Mubarak money laundering



Cairo airport sources said on Wednesday that the 6th of October Prosecution discarded a complaint that was filed against an airline service company, accusing it of laundering money for former President Hosni Mubarak.

The complaint was discarded for lack of evidence.

Mubarak is serving a life sentence in the Tora Prison hospital after being convicted of failing to stop the killing of protesters during the 25 January revolution.

The government seeks to repatriate funds it says Mubarak regime officials acquired illegally and transferred abroad during and after the revolution.
