Egypt's administrative court ordered on Tuesday that the name of ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak and his wife Suzanne be removed from the country's squares and public facilities.

The verdict comes after at least three years of court sessions. The lawsuit was filed shortly after Mubarak was toppled in early 2011 following 18 days of mass protests demanding an end to his 30-year rule, infamous for growing corruption and police brutality.

The name of the ousted president has already been removed from many places, including an underground metro-station in downtown, which was changed to 'The Martyrs' to honour the hundreds who died during the 18-day uprising.

Morsi and Mobarak are Criminals not leaders
Morsi, the clumsiest and weakest in the long history of Egyptian presidency and monarchy, was not the president; he was just a ‘Stebn’- Arabic for a spare flat tire. That’s what the public called him. The real power and orders came from the office of the Morshid. The supreme guide of the MB group. Something similar to the Nazi Fuhrer. Mobarak was just as bad however the difference is that he didn't take orders from any Morshid although the MB and Mobarak do take orders from the US admin.

Morsi never allowed any of his bill boards to kept on public squares, he is true leader
Sisi and Mubarak only wants to rule based on fear of their tyranny.
