In his first address since he stepped down on Feb. 11 due to popular uprising, toppled Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak said he and his family agreed to any measures to be taken to unveil their bank accounts overseas.

He made his remarks in a recorded audio speech aired by pan- Arab Al-Arabiya TV on Sunday.

"I agree to give any written permission to allow the foreign ministry to contact its counterparts overseas to unveil any (bank) accounts belonging to me or my wife," he said.

Mubarak, who delegated his power to the country's supreme military council, complained about accusations and libels being circulated that his and his family's wealth have been mushroomed.

"I strongly pained regarding unfair campaigns and baseless accusations targeting my reputation and history," he said in his message which the Dubai-based TV said was recorded from Mubarak's stay in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Military rulers said on March 28 Mubarak and his family are under house arrest. On Friday, tens of thousands of Egyptians flocked to Cairo's central Tahrir Square, demanding prosecution and trial of Mubarak.
