The former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, 84, received a provisional freedom pardon by a court, although the cause is still against him and the former Minister of Interior Habib al-Adli for the deaths of protesters, but remain in custody for another corruption, judicial sources informed.
Fathi Abulhasan, the plaintiff’s attorney, said the judge’s order that ordered his provisional liberation is only through the process of the death of protesters, as it has been two years since his arrest, which was the maximum timing. Moreover, the Court of Appeal of Cairo, presided by Judge Mohamed Reda Shaukat, answered the lawsuit filed by Mubarak’s attorney’s, who requested his release after the injunction order against the former president.
However, Abulhasan, clarified that only days ago the Attorney General issued a new prison order for a new corruption case, which also accuses his wife and his two children for illegally appropriating public funds reserved for expenses of the presidential palace.
Since last Saturday Mubarak is on trial for the killing of protesters during the revolution, after a court annulled in January the life sentence against him.
