Egypt Court Orders Release of Mubarak
(Cairo) – Deposed Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak will leave jail soon. Egypt court upheld a petition from his lawyer demanding the release of Mubarak. Judicial and security sources confirmed that the court had ordered Mubarak’s release. His lawyer Fareed Al Deeb confirmed this as he left Tora prison after the session. Asked when Mubarak would go free, he said, “Maybe tomorrow”.
Mubarak, 85, was sentenced to life in prison last year for failing to prevent the killing of demonstrators. But a court accepted his appeal earlier this year and ordered a retrial.
