Mubarak retrial adjourned to Monday

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday the retrial of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, his two sons Alaa and Gamal, former interior minister Habib el-Adly, and 6 of his aides, over charges of murdering protesters and financial corruption to Monday, to listen to more witnesses.
The court listened on Sunday to the testimony of former Adly's Office Director, and the assistant of the interior minister.
Earlier witnesses in the case included former Intelligence Chief Mourad Mowafi, former Prime Minister Atef Ebeid, former Interior Minister Ahmed Gamal Eddin and current Petroleum Minister Shefi Ismail.
Mubarak and Adly were first sentenced to 25 years over charges of killing protesters during the January 2011 revolt that forced Mubarak to step down before the court of cassation ordered a retrial. Adly’s aides were previously exonerated before retrial.
