I can confirm that the MPS's Proceeds of Corruption Unit is assisting with the Arab Spring Asset Recovery efforts, which includes cases from Egypt.

The MPS Proceeds of Corruption Unit has the operational lead within the Arab Spring Asset Recovery Task Force. The Proceeds of Corruption Unit is fully funded by the Department for International Development.
