A Cairo criminal court has adjourned to 27 March the trial in which former president Hosni Mubarak and his sons, Gamal and Alaa, are accused of embezzling LE125 million ($17.9 million) for the renovation of presidential palaces.

Mubarak and his two sons – who both face a separate corruption case – also face trials for the killing of protesters during the January 2011 uprising. 

After exceeding the two-year detention period for pending trials, Mubarak was placed under house arrest in a military hospital in the south Cairo district of Maadi.

Gamal and Alaa remain in jail, however.

Mubarak settled another case for corruption charges by returning gifts he had received from state-run institutions.

Meanwhile, a Cairo court on 8 March lifted the gag order on media coverage of Mubarak's ongoing retrial for other charges, setting the stage for court sessions to be televised.
