Egypt's presidency issued its first official reaction to Saturday's court verdict in which former autocrat Hosni Mubarak was cleared of corruption and murder charges, saying the president has full confidence in the country's judicial system.
 
The presidency said it would not comment on the court's judicial verdict, in accordance with the constitution that gives the judiciary full independence.
 
However, the presidency gave orders to Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab to look into procedures for compensating the families of those killed and injured in the January 2011 uprising, based on recommendations given by the Cairo criminal court that ruled on Mubarak's case on Saturday.
 
The president also delegated a legislative reform committee to study the court's suggested amendments to criminal procedures.
 
"President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi asserted that the New Egypt born out of the 25 January [2011] and 30 June [2013] revolutions is on its way to establishing a new modern democratic state based on justice, freedom, equality, and counter-corruption," said the statement from the presidency.
 
Mubarak, along with his interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of his aides, was acquitted on charges of killing protesters during the 2011 uprising which ended his 30-year rule.
 
The court also dropped corruption charge against the ousted president and his sons Gamal and Alaa, as well as runaway businessman Hussein Salem.
 
The verdicts sparked protests in downtown Cairo near Tahrir Square, the epicentre of the 2011 uprising, and public universities in several cities.

Rational action
El sisi has no permission to intervene in mubarak s verdict . Those who are hallucinated by military over control of three powers need to periodically review theirselves particularly the delusion of military dictatorship that experienced from west and not in our country .

Dark Era in Egyptian History
The world is laughing at what turned to be the state of democracy that was brought up by the Egyptian 2011 revolution. Only Egyptians cannot see what's happening to their country.

A True Statesman
Al Sisi knows the deep love people have for Mubarak and at the same time upholds the independence of Judiciary.Not commenting on such a sensitive issue is a mark of statesmanship

Majority of Egypt despises Mubarak
The people of Egypt hate and revile Mubarak. This criminal was justly overthrown in 2011. Egypt hates Mubarak.

The water never reach the top.
The Message is clear and short If you corrupt Egypt you are Hero, if you honest you are Zero by corruption Law. All I hope Mr Mubarak and his sons can do anything to Egypt and to be Thankful for life. All we need to be honest and to do our job right. God save Egypt.

I find it ironic how the Muslim brotherhood suddenly becomes morally indignant.
I bet not an ounce of that moral pretense exists when they are wiring explosives, to kill any Egyptian that may be in the vicinity. Fortunately President Sisi has eliminated your success in practicing terror. If that is your source of frustration get used to it. Your MB is as decimated as your convoluted sense of morality.

Long live the MB
Mubarak thugs are de facto Israeli agents. Long live the Muslim Brotherhood. At least their hands are clean, their pockets are clean, and they are honest.
