CAIRO: The trial of former President Hosni Mubarak, his sons, former Minister of Interior Habib al-Adly and six others resumed Sunday and was adjourned once more to April 1.

Mubarak is on trial for inciting the killing of protesters during the January 25 Revolution and disrupting the order of security, while his sons, Gamal and Alaa, face charges of corruption and squandering public funds.

The trial’s court session was held at the Police Academy, where Mubarak arrived by plane from the Maadi Military Hospital.

The session was scheduled to be held Saturday but inclement weather prevented Mubarak’s plane from reaching the court. Judge Mahmoud Kamel el-Rashidy was head of the court session.

During the session, Adly’s lawyer, Essam el-Battawy, objected to the defendants being held in a glass cage, claiming that they are unable to hear the trial’s proceedings through the barrier.
