CAIRO – The Egyrian Court has dropped case against former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak on charges of conspiring to kill protesters during the 2011 uprising, PakistanTribe reported.
According to Arab media reports the court gave verdict on Saturday morning after almost four years Mubarak was ousted from presidency in a popular uprising.
Mubarak, 86, was accused along with seven of his former police commanders of involvement in the killing of hundreds of demonstrators during the 2011 revolt that ended his three-decade rule. An appeals court overturned an initial life sentence for Mubarak in 2012 on a technicality.
The new verdict was initially scheduled for September 27, but Mahmoud Kamel al-Rashidi, the chief judge, postponed it, saying he had not finished writing the reasoning after a retrial that saw thousands of case files presented.
