article imageTrial of Hosni Mubarak Resumes After Break

By William Rubin     Dec 29, 2011 in Politics
Cairo - Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's trial resumed on Wednesday after a long delay caused by Mubarak's illness and the defense's concerns with the presiding Judge.
Wednesday's proceedings were primarily technical in nature with witness and testimony requests and weren't the main story.
The resumption of Mubarak's trial comes on the heels of the denial of Judge Ahmed Refaat removal from the case.
The families of the victims of Mubarak's alleged crimes were concerned that Refaat did not question Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi in an intense and appropriate manner and asked that he be dismissed from the bench for the remainder of Mubarak's case.
“The court has responded to all the defendants’ lawyers requests...Egypt has guaranteed for Mubarak a very fair trial, the judge has ensured that all the basics of justice are there. No one should object the final verdict," said prosecution lawyer Khaled Abu Bakr, according to FirstPost.com
