EGYPT’S COURT ACQUITS MUBARAK OF CHARGES OF KILLING PROTESTERS

CAIRO, March 3 (NNN-KUNA) — Egypt’s Court of Cassation Thursday acquitted former President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak of all charges pertaining to killing protesters during the 25 January Revolution events. The ruling came six years after the spark of the revolution.

Before the court, Mubarak denied all charges relating to the incitement and involvement in murdering the protesters.

In this context, Mubarak’s sons; Alaa and Gamal, his minister of interior Habib al-Adly, along with six of his aides, were also acquitted of charges of killing protesters during the resolution.

A Criminal Court had previously ordered the acquittal of Mubarak, his sons, al-Adly and his aides of charges of killing protesters.

The Court of Cassation’s prosecution demanded the reopening of the murder charges case against Mubarak over the revolution events.
