ANGER RAGES AS MUBARAK’S TRIAL ADJOURNED AGAIN

Muslim World

Families of Egyptians killed in protests that unseated Hosni Mubarak reacted angrily in court on 7 June when a judge trying the former president over the deaths barred their lawyers from taking part in the case. While many Egyptians have lost interest in cases brought against their fallen “Pharaoh” for oppression and corruption during his 30 years in power, relatives of those who died in the crackdown in early 2011 have grown impatient with judges they see as relics of the old regime. There was uproar when the presiding judge then ruled that he would not let lawyers for the families — the civil plaintiffs — take part in future sessions. Lawyers for the relatives said they would try to challenge that ruling. Some of several dozen people present in the Cairo court for the second session of the retrial taunted the defendants before the brief procedural hearing began. “The people want to execute the killer,” some of them chanted.
