CAIRO, August 21 (Itar-Tass) - The Egyptian court on Wednesday, August 21, ruled to absolve former President Hosni Mubarak of the latest corruption charges brought against him by the ousted regime.
His defence counsel Fareed El-Deeb told journalists after the court meeting that Mubarak, 85, could be released in the evening.
However, the superintendant of Torah prison where the former president is being held told the Egyptian television channel Al-Hayat that he would discuss the issue of Mubarak’s release with the prosecutor’s office on Thursday morning, August 22.
Mubarak was sentenced to life imprisonment after a court had convicted him on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year's uprising that forced him quite office.
