Assets of former top security officials unfrozen



The North Cairo Criminal Court accepted petitions from former security officials Hassan Abdel Rahman

and Ahmed Ramzy to cancel the Illicit Gains Authority order to freeze their assets.

Abdel Rahman and Ramzy were acquitted of killing protesters during the 25 January revolution on 2 June. Ramzy was freed following the verdict while Abdel Rahman has remained in custody on charges of destroying files at the State Security Investigation Services, which he headed, after Mubarak stepped down.

The court agreed to unfreeze the assets of Abdel Rahman, Ramzy and Ramzy’s five sons.
