As I have expected and as I have predicted Hosni Mubarak is put on trial and is expected to be transferred to Cairo in hours to stand in front of criminal court as some source claimed.
Oh yes just before #May27 and before the 3rd “15 days” finishes after couple of days and Mubarak will be free according , the general prosecutor has ordered that the former president , his sons and friend Hussein Salem to be put on trial on charges of financial corruption and giving the orders of shooting the protesters. Now this group of disrespectful men are facing several charges as follows :
- First Former/Ousted president Hosni Mubarak will face a criminal court for the first time on the charges of killing protesters along with Habib El Adly.
- Mubarak is accused along his sons of using their influence and accepted bribes from Hussein Salem “ A palace and 4 villas in Sharm” in return Salem would get large pieces of land in South Sinai and to export gas to Israel for a price less than its cost. Salem is accused of bribing them.
- It is worth to mention that there are charges , financial corruption charges facing Alaa and Gamal Mubarak aside from this case.
- The diamond of today’s official statement issued by the general prosecution is its notification to the military prosecution regarding the arms deals commissions scandal of Mubarak and Salem. You got documented incidents in the States with these claims.
This is a very important development without doubt but I do not know why we have to wait for all that. It is the first time in the Egyptian and Arabic history that a former president is put on a trial like that. It is no wonder that the news was highlighted by our friends in Syria , it brought hope them and to the rest of the Arab world.
Now Hussein Salem is some where in the world , some people claim that he is Israel where as others claim that he is in Switzerland nevertheless it seems that everybody forgot that Salem could be in Spain or Romania.
Now the lawyers of Mubarak are claiming that he did not give the orders to shoot the protesters just like Omar Soliman where as the police generals currently in jail say that they got the orders from above and that the minister of interior could not issue it without the order of Mubarak himself. It is now up to two : Habib El Adly who will sell Mubarak if I am not mistaken and SCAF based on the revelation of Tantawy.
I do not know why we had to wait all these months and provoked by details like the one we found yesterday : Mubarak is being treated on the state’s expense including psychological treatment !! What about the injured of the revolution like Dr. Mosaab who is being treated on his own expense . At least Dr. Mosaab is capable of paying for his treatment ,what about those who can’t afford it !! Who will pay the psychological treatment bill of not only the families of the martyrs , the injured and their families but the millions of Egyptians who suffered under his rule !!
I do not understand the logic of waiting all that time , all those months and all those test balloons and provoking leaks regarding Mubarak and his trial. Aside from all the crimes he committed against the Egyptian people ,what happened starting from January 25th whether in Cairo or in Suez is considered unforgivable crimes
Just for reminder here are scenes from the early days of revolution , for the victims of Mubarak’s police who were killed in cold blood.

Now I will confess and tell you that I have not seen these videos except today and I felt so angry and depressed because I felt we need to restore back the rights of those martyrs. The decision of the general prosecutor “who is currently under fire of slowness” is another important step to restore their right.
Nevertheless insh Allah we are heading to Tahrir insh Allah on #May27, we still got other demands.
