Egypt’s Mubarak back in court, lawyer to seek his release

CAIRO: Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak will face a new court hearing on Wednesday during which his lawyer will seek his release from prison, judicial sources said.The hearing is the fourth and final case against the long-time president, who was toppled in a popular uprising in February 2011.Since April, courts have ordered Mubarak's conditional release in the three other cases against him -- two involving corruption, and one for allegedly killing protesters.The latest came on Monday when a court ordered his conditional release in the third case, which involved charges of corruption.His lawyer plans to appeal against the fourth and final case, which is also related to corruption, in a bid to secure the former president's release, according to a judicial source.Copyright AFP (Agence France-Presse), 2013
