Mubarak Trial Adjourned Until Wednesday
The trial of Hosni Mubarak, the fallen dictator of Egypt, has been postponed until Wednesday, hours after it began. Defense lawyers gave arguments like “the former leader was a victim of malicious accusations.”
Farid el-Deeb, Mubarak’s chief defense lawyer presented the former Egyptian president as a “clean” leader who placed the law above all else and worked tirelessly for his nation. Mubarak attorneys received five sessions to state their case in defense of the former Egyptian leader, who currently is facing charges of corruption and unlawfully killing demonstrators during Egypt’s insurrection.
The prosecutor has called Mubarak to face the death penalty for his crimes; the chief prosecutor Mustafa Suleiman previously stated that the accused of 83-year-old must have ordered the police to open fire on the demonstrators. (AV)
