Mubarak trial resumes in Cairo


The trial of ousted president Hosni Mubarak resumes in Cairo today. After the drama of seeing him in court at the first hearing, Egyptians are now waiting to hear the facts of the case against him.

Lawyers have already called on the government to hand over documents that may reveal who ordered police to fire on protesters during the uprising that unseated him.

Founder of Egyptian Al-Ghad party, Ayman Nour: “The second plenary session of the trial of the former president , Hosni Mubarak, is extremely important, because it will unveil the real intentions of the General prosecutor and will demonstrate just how serious this trial will be.”

The court proceedings are being broadcast live to a public with an appetite to see justice done.

More than 850 people died in the protests earlier this year after police fired on them using live ammunition.”

Mubarak has denied any role in the killings but he could face the death penalty if found guilty.
