 CAIRO: Switzerland’s Attorney General Michael Lauber will visit Cairo Saturday to discuss with Egyptian officials ways to recover funds of family of former President Hosni Mubarak, which have been frozen in Swiss banks since the 2011 uprising, Youm7 reported.

The visit comes days after Egypt’s Cassation court on Saturday upheld a three-year prison sentence against Mubarak and his two sons for embezzling public funds worth 125 million EGP ($15.6 million.)

They were fined that same amount in addition to 21 million EGP.

Lauber is scheduled to hold a press conference Saturday evening before leaving the country.

Mubarak’s total amount of assets in Swiss banks is estimated at $5 billion EGP, according to Al Ahram.
