 Nader Fergani, an expert on Arab Human Development Reports, said that the US envoy to Egypt Frank Wisner’s law firm has represented the Mubarak regime in the past and handled arbitrations and litigation on the [Mubarak] government's behalf in Europe and the US, urging Hosni Mubarak to remain president of Egypt so he can hide his fortune.

Fergani has discovered a major conflict of interest that may explain why Wisner was so comfortable with suggesting that Mubarak— who has more than a million of protesters, calling on him to step down for more than three weeks — should stay in power during a transition period.

He has found that Wisner works for Patton Boggs, a New York-DC law firm that includes in its client list none other than the Egyptian government itself. Patton Boggs even took part in litigation against Americans on behalf of Mubrak's government.

 US diplomat Wisner, whom Obama sent to Mubarak with a message in February, just days after the outbreak of protests calling for Mubarak's ouster, said Hosni Mubarak “must stay in office in order to steer [democratic] changes through."

 "It's his opportunity to write his own legacy. He has given 60 years of his life to the service of his country, and this is an ideal moment for him to show the way forward," Wisner said.
