Anonymous sources told Ahram Online that Suzanne Thabet, the wife of Egypt’s ousted president Mubarak, is being questioned now inside a government building.
Mubarak’s wife faces accusations of profiteering, specifically, with regard to secret accounts linked to the Alexandria Library as well as siphoning money from the yearly Reading for All Festival.
The probes also include alleged gold funds that were supposed to be delivered by the ex-minister of information, Anas El-Fiqi to Mrs Mubarak.
Ahram Online has also learnt that ex-minister of health, Hatem El-Gabaly will be summoned on accusations of profiteering. Both the ex-minister of culture, Farouk Hosni and ex-minister of finance, Youssef Boutros Ghali, will also be summoned on accusations of administrative corruption while they were in office.

I hope the Egyptian people do not succumb to the temptations of summary justice. Unfortunately, by probably exaggerating allegations against Moubarak and his family, some sections of Egyptian society are not only choosing 'vendetta' justice, but also making it even harder for the governments to come. These governments are going to have a very hard time, now that people believe that Egypt has vast treasures that the outgoing leaders have been plundering, to get the economy going and people to make their contribution to the nation's wealth and development. Since the thieves are gone, where is the treasure then? Very pessimistic prospect for such a wonderful country.'
