MADRID (AP) — Spanish police say they have seized some €28 million ($36.5 million) of assets linked to deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
A police statement Thursday said the assets included €18 million in investments in three Spanish banks, two properties in a wealthy Madrid suburb and seven in the southern jet set resort of Marbella. They also seized five luxury vehicles.
Police said the action was taken as a result of an international judicial petition by the Egyptian government to block assets linked to 130 people associated with Mubarak, his family and former government members.
The 84-year-old was sentenced earlier this year to life in prison for not preventing the killing of 900 protesters during an 18-day revolt that unseated him last year. Mubarak ruled Egypt for three decades.
