Mubarak, his sons, aides to return to court Saturday


16:25, September 16, 2011

CAIRO, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- A Cairo court decided Thursday to resume the trial of former President Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, fugitive businessman Hussein Salim, former Interior Minister Habib el-Adli and six of his aides Saturday.

In the coming days the court presided by judge Ahmed Refaat will watch the video and CDs about the killings during the January protests, said official news agency MENA. The testimonies of Chairman of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces Hussein Tantawi and Chief of Staff Sami Anan were postponed to Sept. 24 and 25 due to the country's security situation. The two were supposed to bear witness earlier this week.

Mubarak and Adli were accused of killing peaceful protestors in the Jan. 25 revolution, while Mabarak, his two sons and Salim charged with corruption, wasting public funds and exporting gas to Israel at an abnormally lower price.

Salim is currently in detention in Spain pending extradition.
