CAIRO: Cairo Criminal Court ruled late Thursday to release both sons of former President Hosni Mubarak, Gamal and Alaa, in the case of illicit gains, Youm7 reported.

Gamal and Alaa were accused of exploiting the presidential influence of their father to reap fortunes inconsistent with the sources of their legitimate income.

They were previously released by the Court of Misdemeanor from the same case on June 24, 2013 and the verdict was upheld in June 27, 2013 by the criminal court.

However, the judge of investigations decided to imprison them on June 16, where an appeal to the verdict was considered on June 26. He ordered to cancel the decision of their imprisonment and release them.
