Mubarak involved in Sadat assassination?
Dr. Samir Sabry the lawyer entrusted by Rakia Sadat, the daughter of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has submitted a complaint to the Deputy General Counsel Abdel Meguid Mahmoud against the ousted President Hosni Mubarak, former Housing Minister as Hasballah Kafrawi an deputy chairman of al Tagamu party Abul-Ezz al-Hariri. She requested an investigation into the 1981 assassination of President Sadat.
This is the first time Mubarak is accused by Sadat family in involvement in the assassination of Anwar Sadat.
Sabri move came after reports published at the weekend quoting Kafrawi as saying that Mubarak had been involved in the slaying of his predecessor. Al-Hariri backed the claims of the former Minister, according to the lawyer.
Kafrawi was quoted as saying that over the past years he had collected information about the assassination of Sadat during a military parade, on October 6, 1981, adding that Sadat was not killed by the bullets fired by Islamist Army officer Khalid Islambouli, the chief convict in the murder. According to him, other bullets came from inside the stand where Sadat as well as Mubarak and other senior military commanders, top officials and high-profile dignitaries were sitting.
The former Minister stressed that days would reveal that Mubarak had a hand in the assassination, as he and Israel’s intelligence organization the Mossad allegedly stood behind the killing.
