Egypt's Rebel (Tamarod) campaign said Wednesday that they are "not surprised" by ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s release on Wednesday by a Cairo appeal court.

Tamarod charged that "the complicity of Morsi and his prosecutor general" has led for this recent decision to set Mubarak free, saying that the Egyptian people should demand the retrial of Mubarak, his officials, along with the trial of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and his allies.

"The January 25 Revolution and its continuing wave of 30 June will not stand and watch the killers of the martyrs [of the January 25 uprising] acquitted. If acquittal is granted to Mubarak today, it will be granted to Morsi tomorrow," the statement read.

The grassroots campaign blamed Morsi and his prosecutor-general for their "refusal to investigate the criminal charges against Mubarak and his officials" during his one year in power.

Morsi had reiterated during his one year in power that he was facing "hidden hands" that were holding him from prosecuting and incriminating Mubarak and his "remnant regime."

The Rebel campaign went on to call for a popular trial to prosecute Mubarak as they will "not be silent for the acquittal of the murderer of the Egyptian population."

Mubarak received Wednesday release order by a Cairo court of appeal pending further investigations in a case of illegally receiving gifts from Ahram publisher.

Mubarak is due to be set free within the next 48 hours, if the prosecution does not appeal.

The Rebel youth group also called on both interim President Adly Mansour and Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi to use their legal authorities to detain Mubarak as his arrest will have a “danger to the Egyptian national security” amid the current imposed emergency period.

The grassroots campaign said it will make use of its perspective mambers in the 50-member committee, which will write a final draft for a national charter, to push for constitutional articles that could allow for the prosecution of the ousted Mubarak and his cabinet on charges of corruption and negligence.

What Stupidity Is This ?
Tamarod blames Morsi for the release of Mubarak. This is not not only the most stupid statement but an attempt at making the whole world fools. When tamarod and NSF were demonstrating against Morsi every day for one year, no political leader was arrested and the protesters enjoyed their human rights . The MB and Morsi supporters had 6 weeks of protests they were massacred to almost 2000 people dead and 10000 injured. Tamarod stop being fools and stop thinking that people of the world are fools like you.

Quraan Describes these ppl as dumb deaf and blind(Tamarod)
Allhumdulillah How perfect is Islam. If these so call Tamarod had brains they would have realised by now they have done the dirty work required by there dictator leaders to take power. Now they can suffer the consequence. Don't blame others when you don't have any intellect. It is your fault Tamarod that you let the dictators back in power not Morsi. Blame lies with you and your co collaborators.

Long live justice
This is the "great" Egyptian justice system. Imprisoning a democratically-elected president while setting free a despicable tyrant who corroded Egypt and murdered thousands for 30 years. Long live Justice!

Morsi is no different
Mobarak was so called democratically elected for 30 years, what makes you believe Morsi was democratically elected? Mobarak and Morsi are both tyrants reporting to the same foreign organization that runs Egypt since the unresolved assissination of Anwar El Sadat.
