Mubarak trial verdict due June 2


The trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak attracted both pro and anti protests while the hearings were being conducted.

Now all interested parties will have to wait until June 2 when the verdict is due to be delivered.

Mubarak is charged with ordering the killing of protesters in the uprising that swept him from power.

One mother whose son, Moaz Said Mohammad, died in Tahrir Square, called for justice for all the young men who perished in the 18-day uprising.

An elderly man accused Hosni Mubarak of stealing Egypt’s wealth. “Because of him,” he said, “we only had chicken legs to eat for 30 years, despite our country being a land of plenty.”

Although Mubarak could face the death penalty if found guilty, he is not without supporters.

Those defending the ousted leader claim he had transferred power to the head of the army who was in charge of security when protesters were killed.
