Mubarak sons' new corruption trial begins

CAIRO (UPI) -- Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, sons of ex-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, were in court Monday for a new corruption trial after they were acquitted in another case.

The two Mubaraks and seven other defendants were accused of insider trading, Middle East Online reported.

They faced different corruption charges along with their father in a separate trial but a court dropped the charges because the statute of limitations expired.

In the new trial, Alaa and Gamal Mubarak are charged with illegally obtaining about $412,000 million from al-Watany Bank of Egypt by manipulating the stock exchange, al-Masry al-Youm reported.

The younger Mubaraks have been in prison pending investigation in the new case.

On June 2, a court sentenced Hosni Mubarak and his interior minister to life in prison for their roles in the killing of protesters during the Arab Spring uprising that led to Mubarak's ouster in February 2011.

Thanks alot - your answer solved all my problems after several days strnggliug


"As I mentioned boefre, he and his sons were just a little late getting out of the country."Given how this all went down, this is hardly surprising that they were not able to get out of the country fast enough. They managed to lose the support of the military and most of the rest of the power brokers in the country and apparently this all happened quite quickly. As such, it comes as no surprise they would not know they needed to leave the country until it was to late. Its not surprising that grossly incompetent intellegece services like those in America would be caught by surprise by this whole thing. Egypt's intellegence services are much more competent. As such, it seems hard to believe they would have been caught by surprise. Apparently Mr. Mubarak lost even their support!! A leader, especially a dictator, will have to lean heavily on his/her intellegence services if they wish to govern successfully. Just who is organizing the "Arab spring?" Why aren't enterprising reporters asking this question? My first thoughts are this will not lead to genuine "democratic" reforms. All that will happen is that one set of repressive governments will be replaced with other repressive governments but if we had some idea whose behind this we might be able to get a better idea of where this is headed. Once we know where it is headed, we might be better able to chart a course for our international policies. [url=]lftxagoqjhh[/url] [link=]olniqrhda[/link]
