WikiLeaks: Saudi Willing to Pay $10bn for Mubarak's Release
Wed Jun 24, 2015 13:19:33

The Persian Gulf States were willing to pay $10 billion for the release of deposed Egyptian President Mubarak, according to the so-called 'Saudi Cables' released by WikiLeaks, Al-Alam News Network reports.

An undated cable, labeled “top secret,” quotes an unnamed Egyptian official saying the Muslim Brotherhood would agree to release Mubarak in exchange for $10 billion "since the Egyptian people will not benefit from his imprisonment."

 

However, a handwritten note on the document said that paying “ransom” for Mubarak was “not a good idea.”

"Even if it is paid, the Muslim Brotherhood will not be able to do anything regarding releasing Mubarak, the note says, "It seems there are no alternatives for the president but to enter prison."
