Former Egyptian leader Mubarak back in court for retrial

Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has arrived in court to face a retrial on charges of complicity in the murder of protesters during the uprising that swept him from power in 2011.

Mubarak and his former interior minister, Habib el-Adli, were convicted and sentenced to life in prison last June for failing to stop the killing.

The retrial was ordered after an appeals court in January accepted appeals lodged by both the prosecution and the defence.

It had been due to begin last month but was aborted when the presiding judge withdrew from the case and referred it to another court.

His retrial on charges of complicity in the killing of demonstrators in the uprising that ousted him will start on 11th May, a Cairo appeals court said.

A retrial of Egypt's ousted president Hosni Mubarak has been set for 13 April, the country’s appeal's court has decided.

A retrial was ordered earlier this year after a court accepted his appeal against the life sentence for his role in the deaths of protesters in 2011.

Mubarak, former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six top security chiefs will be retried.
