Hosni Mubarak’s Trial Postponed Until June 10, State TV ReportsOla Galal
The trial of ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak on charges of involvement in the deaths of at least 846 protesters during the 2011 uprising was postponed until June 10 to allow the court to review evidence.
Judge Mahmoud El-Rashidi announced the decision live on state television today. Mubarak, his long-time interior minister, Habib El-Adli, and six former security officials are being retried after a court in January overturned a life sentence handed down to the former president.
Mubarak is also being retried on separate corruption-related counts with his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, and escaped businessman Hussein Salem, who’s being tried in absentia.
Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for three decades, was sentenced in June last year for failing to prevent the killings.
