Hosni Mubarak to be released soon - Lawyer | Pakistantribe.com

CAIRO – Following acquittal from the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising, a prosecutor released former Egypt President Hosni Mubarak, his lawyer saidMonday.

“He can go home now when the doctors decide he is able to,” Farid al-Deeb said, adding that Mubarak is banned from leaving the country pending an ongoing graft investigation.

Mubarak, 88, has spent most of his time detained at a military hospital in Cairo since his arrest in 2011.

Egypt’s top appeals court on March 2 acquitted Mubarak of involvement in the killing of protesters during the revolt that toppled him, ending the final trial for the strongman who had ruled for 30 years.
