2nd June, 2012, Cairo: Today, an Egyptian court may pronounce its verdict in the trial of Hosni Mubarak, the ousted Egyptian president, who along with Habib al-Adly, the former interior minister and six others may confront the gallows if they are convicted of dictating deaths to around 850 people.
This case also includes Gamal and Alaa, president’s sons. Both of them have been accused of murdering peaceful protesters as well as wasting public money. Interior Ministry of the country has called for special measurements to secure the court premises. The trial will be telecasted live by a state-owned television and the court has not given the permission to any other channel to cover the trial.
Mubarak will be taken to the court directly from the hospital. Legal experts have talked about what the sentence could be, but all of them agreed that there hardly any chances of death penalty. Around 100 lawyers are demanding vengeance for those who killed in January, whereas twenty-two lawyers are defending Hosni Mubarak.
