08:35, April 08, 2013

CAIRO, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's prosecution ordered Sunday former President Hosni Mubarak for 15 days more in temporary custody over profiteering and corruption charges, state-run news agency MENA reported.

Prosecutor-general Talaat Ibrahim Abdullah ordered extension of Mubarak's detention as interrogations revealed he looted the public funds allocated for maintenance and other works in the presidential palaces for himself, his wife Suzanne Thabet and his two sons Alaa and Gamal.

The 15-day temporary detention will take effect once his temporary detention on other cases is over, according to MENA report.

Mubarak is currently serving life imprisonment over responsibility for the killing of protesters in early 2011, while his two sons are in custody over corruption and profiteering charges.

The Cairo Appeals Court has set April 13 to retry Mubarak, his two sons, his interior minister Habib al-Adli and six of his assistants.
