A Cairo emergency court has ruled that all pictures of ousted president Mubarak and his wife Suzanne Thabet be removed from Egypt’s streets, squares and public institutions.

According to the court ruling, the Egyptian people are now aware of Mubarak’s corruption, making it important to rid the country of the image of control of his 30-year rule.

The court case was filed by lawyer, Samir Sabry.
