CAIRO, August 19. (Itar-Tass). – Hosni Mubarak may be released from prison during this week, according to a statement made by the ex-President’s attorney Farid ad-Dib.
The lawyer said that the prosecutor dismissed one of the earlier brought charges in corruption. There’s one last charge left, but it is “just a juridical formality that will take not more than 48 hours to solve”, the attorney stressed.
The fortune of Mubarak and members of his family turned out dozens of times lesser than it was claimed after the 2011 revolution. The total wealth of 85-year-old Mubarak, his wife Suzanne Thabet, their two sons Alaa and Gamal, as well as daughters-in-law Heidy Rasekh and Khadiga El Gammal is estimated at 9 billion Egyptian pounds (less than $1.3 billion).
Meanwhile, ad-Dib added that 85-year-old Hosni Mubarak in the future would face alias trial on charges of implication in murder of protesters at mass actions that led to governmental overthrow in 2011. The results of the past trial, when the court convicted the ex-President, were deemed invalid by superior judicial authorities.
Earlier it was reported that this trial is adjourned until August 25.
