Cairo: The trial of Egypt’s former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly, who’s accused of ordering the killing of peaceful protesters during the January 25 revolution, has begun. The first trial session of el-Adly and his six deputies commenced on Thursday at Giza Criminal Court in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. The Egyptian minister has already been sentenced to twelve years for corruption.
The trial of Egypt’s ousted ruler Hosni Mubarak, alongside with his two sons Alaa and Gamal, began on Wednesday.
“I entirely deny all those accusations,” Mubarak said in reply to the charges of killing protesters during the 18-day revolution that put an end to his 30-year rule.
Mubarak is the first Arab leader to stand trial in person since popular uprisings swept the Arab world.
