Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak is worth no more than $1 million, his lawyer told CNN Sunday (May 29th).
Farid al-Deeb said the former president holds no assets overseas and "does not own anything else in Egypt or outside Egypt". Any wealth Mubarak has, his lawyer said, was acquired from saving "from working for 62 years".
Last week Mubarak was ordered to go on trial in connection with the shooting of protesters during the January 25 revolution and on charges of corruption. He has denied the charges.
"The president has serious heart problems," al-Deeb said, adding that "he suppresses a lot of his feelings."
