Former MOI Habib El-Adly defence begins today

Ahram Online, Monday 23 Jan 2012

Lawyers open defence of Mubarak's former interior minister Habib El-Adly whose removal from office was a chief demand of protesters during Egypt's revolution

Lawyers for Mubarak's former interior minister Habib El-Adly will begin presenting their evidence on Monday, the day Egypt's newly elected parliament holds its first session.

El-Adly, along with former president Hosni Mubarak, his two sons Gamal and Alaa, and four police officers are accused of having ordered the shooting of demonstrators during protests that toppled the Mubarak regime last year.

The removal of El-Adly from office was one of the chief demands of protesters when they launched the revolution against Mubarak's regime.

On Sunday, lawyers for Mubarak concluded their defence with the claim that their client is technically still the president of Egypt and therefore should not be facing criminal charges.
