Egypt’s Cassation Court overturned Thursday an earlier court’s decision to drop charges against former president Hosni Mubarak over complicity in the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising.

A retrial  the third and final trial on the charges  will take place before the Court of Cassation, the country's highest criminal court and legal authority. Rulings from the court, as stipulated under Egyptian law, are not subject to further appeals.

The court ordered that the retrial of Mubarak open 5 November.

However, the court upheld the acquital of the other defendants in the same case, including ex-interior minister Habib El-Adly and six security aides. This decision is now final and cannot be further appealed.

Mubarak, 87, was initially sentenced to life in prison in 2012 for complicity in the murdering protestors during the 18-day January 2011 revolt that ended his 30-year autocratic rule, but an appeals court overturned the decision and ordered a retrial.

In November 2014, the retrial dropped the case against the ex-president, citing legal flaws, and cleared former interior minister Habib Al-Adly and six security aides.

Equal Justice.
Mr Hosni Mubarak has done the same as Mr Morsi by killing protesters, so both of them should have the equal justice. All we know Mr Mubarak has a lot of money but Mr Morsi hasn't. Egyptians have enough from corruption Courts. All we need to be honest and to do our jobs right. God save Egypt.

Morsi never killed any one, It was clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi
In which 8 brotherhood members died and 3 anti-Morsi protesters died.

For Real? Or for show
Is the court decision at all influenced by the global criticism of the apparent inconsistency of Mubarak acquittal and Morsi death sentence? Are they going to get it right this time? Or it’s just for show?
