Egypt's Mubarak to receive monthly allowance of 339 from the state

43845.jpegDeposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is in receipt of a monthly allowance of $339 from the state, an Egyptian paper said on Tuesday.

Mubarak's pension as the former commander of the armed forces could not be disclosed, the Al-Masry Al-Youm daily said, citing an unnamed state official, RIA Novosti informs.

"There is no truth to reports that former president Hosni Mubarak has left Egypt for Tabuk in Saudi Arabia", "He is under house arrest, with his family, in Egypt," the country's military rulers said in a statement on Facebook.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has ruled Egypt since Mubarak was forced to quit in February this year after 18 days of massive street protests against his 30-year autocratic regime.

The council has announced it will hold a general election in September. It said emergency laws would be lifted before the elections, Sify says.
