Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been swept from power by extraordinary public demonstrations against his corrupt regime, but unless we all act now he could take billions in stolen public money with him.
Mubarak is estimated to have amassed up to $70 billion across the world! Governments have just days to freeze these assets before Mubarak, his family and inner circle can hide them. Switzerland has already frozen his finances, and some EU leaders have offered to help. But only a massive outcry can get decisive global action to stop the Mubarak fortune from disappearing.
This is our moment to give critical support to the Egyptian struggle for a new era -- let's raise the pressure on all nations to ensure Mubarak's assets are returned to their rightful owners -- the Egyptian people. If we reach 500,000 by Friday -- we will deliver it to the G20 meeting.
We call on you to immediately freeze any assets of the former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, his family, and his circle of friends and advisers -- so they can be investigated and returned to the Egyptian people; and to provide cooperation and assistance to Egyptian authorities under Article 51 of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
