Egyptian Notary Plays Key Role In Mubarak Financial Probe

From time to time, Notaries across the globe are called upon to act as impartial witnesses to historic events. In a recent occurrence, an Egyptian Notary was summoned to authenticate documents signed by the wife of Egypt’s former President Hosni Mubarak — documents that relinquished cash and property over to Egyptian authorities.

The Notary, under orders from Egypt’s Attorney General, met Mubarak’s wife at a hospital following the uprising. The Notary authenticated three powers of attorney documents which transferred her accounts and assets over to Egyptian authorities as part of an ongoing investigation on the Mubarak family’s wealth.
