Hosni Mubarak Will Apologize to Egypt


Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak will issue an official apology to Egypt and plead for amnesty, according to the Egyptian independent newspaper al-Shorouk. According to Egyptian officials, Mubarak is “drafting a letter which will be broadcast on Egyptian and Arabic channels, apologizing on behalf of himself and his family for any offense caused to the people.” As part of the amnesty agreement, Mubarak is expected to hand over all of his assets, just as his wife did. The request for amnesty would most likely apply to Mubarak and his wife, and not to his sons Alaa and Gamal, who are currently being held in a Cairo prison on corruption charges.
