CAIRO: Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Saturday the trial of Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, and former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly to May 12, to begin hearing the defense of the former assistant to the Interior Minister for State Security Investigations Service Hassan Abdel Rahman.

The defendants are accused of killing protesters during the January 25 Revolution. During the trial, Adly’s defense demanded the investigation of the places where the deaths and injuries occurred during the revolution.

The last session of the trial was held on May 6 and it was postponed to complete the hearing of the defense case for former Assistant Interior Minister for the Public Security Sector Adly Fayed.

The defendants face charges of killing protesters during the January 25 Revolution, spreading chaos in the country and creating a security vacuum.

During the last trial session, the court heard the defense case of the seventh defendant, Fayed, whose defense lawyer Mustafa Ramadan accused Muslim Brotherhood members and their supporters of killing the protesters during the revolution, Youm7 reported.

The first trial of Mubarak, Adly and his six security aides began in August 2011.
