An Egyptian court will review a petition for the release of deposed President Hosni Mubarak later today, judicial sources have told Reuters.
His lawyer told ITV News that all charges had been dropped and that Mr Mubarak could walk free in the next few days, if the court upholds the petition.
The longstanding leader has been in custody since his overthrow in 2011 charged with various counts of corruption and ordering the killing of protesters.
Reuters reports that he still faces the prospect of a retrial for the latter accusation.
