Hosni Mubarak of Egypt Sentenced to Life
Awramba Times (Washngton DC) – Egypt’s ex- ruler, Hosni Mubarak has been sentenced to life in prison after a court convicted him on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year’s uprising that forced him from power.
According to media report, as the judge announced the verdict on Mubarak, protesters and families of the martyrs outside the court began chanting with utter joy “God is great” and “Martyrs blood was not spilled in vain.” People were hugging each other with tears in their eyes, feeling elated and proud of the judiciary system. But after the initial sentencing was announced, matters began to go down hill for many standing outside. Violence soon erupted as Gamal and Alaa Mubarak and the six senior police heads were acquitted. Families of the martyrs soon began heatedly chanting, eventually clashing with the CSF. Soon protesters began chanting for the purging of Egypt’s judiciary while pro-Mubarak activists began to leave the scene.
