Egypt to Decide On Mubarak Embezzlement Case

Cairo’s Criminal Court will issue its ruling against ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak in charges of stealing public funds on Wednesday.

Former president Mubarak, his sons Alaa and Gamal and four of his aides are accused of seizing and facilitating the seizure of more than 125 million Egyptian pounds ($14.37 million) to build and renovate presidential palaces.

Mubarak was released from jail last year, but he is currently staying at a military hospital in the Cairo suburb of Maadi.

He is also being tried in separate cases for the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising and profiting from the export of gas to Israel, among other charges.
