Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Saturday the re-trial of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, former Interior Minister Habib El-Adly, and a number of El-Adly's aides, to 19 October.

The court has earmarked sessions on October 19, 20 and 21 to listen to testimonies from Atef Ebeid - Prime Minister under Mubarak, former Interior Minister Ahmed Gamal El-Din, current Petroleum Minister Sherif Ismail, and former member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces Major General Hassan El-Roweiny.

The three sessions will not be aired for national security reasons.  

This is the seventh session in the retrial, which was ordered in January 2013.

Supporters of Mubarak gathered outside the Police Academy on the outskirts of Cairo where the trial is being held. Mubarak was transported to the Police Academy via helicopter as per previous sessions. His sons Gamal and Alaa, along with  El-Adly, also arrived at the Police Academy.

The 85 year-old deposed president and El-Adly received life sentences in June 2012 for political responsibility for the killing of peaceful protesters during the January 2011 uprising that led to his ouster.

Mubarak also faces charges of squandering public funds by selling natural gas to Israel at below market prices.

Earlier verdicts were overturned in January 2013 by an appeal court on grounds of procedural improprieties. 

Mubarak's first trial began in August 2011.

Mubarak will be found not guilty..
It is obvious to all that judges trying mubarak and his two sons are loyal to him and will find them not guilty. So why keep on adjourning the trial and bluffing the people.
