Egypt Court Rejects Request for Vote on Mubarak Amnesty

An Egyptian court rejected a lawsuit requesting a public referendum on whether to grant ousted former President Hosni Mubarak amnesty in exchange for the return of funds he allegedly amassed while in office, the state-run Al-Ahram reported today.

The State Council’s Administrative Court, in dismissing the case, ruled that there was no constitutional basis for holding such a referendum, the Cairo-based daily said.

Mubarak is accused of complicity in the deaths of some of the more than 800 protesters killed during the 18-day uprising that forced him from power a year ago. The charge carries a possible death sentence. His sons Gamal, who had been groomed to succeed him, and businessman Alaa face corruption charges.

Egyptians have clamored for the return of the fortune Mubarak and his family are accused of amassing during his almost 30 years as president.
