Court Orders Mubarak Retrial

Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak will be retried, after a court granted his appeal of his life sentence on charges that he failed to prevent the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising. Habib el-Adly, Mubarak’s security chief, who is also serving a life sentence on the same charges, will also be retried. No date has been set for either retrial. But Mubarak isn’t out of the woods yet. Prosecutors placed a new detention hold on Mubarak while they investigate allegations he received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Egypt’s top newspapers as a show of loyalty during his regime.
