CAIRO: Kefaya Movement organized a protest in front of the office of Attorney General Hisham on Aug. 20 at 12:00 p.m., Kefaya movement member Mohsen Hashem told The Cairo Post.

It will not only be a protest, Kefaya will issue a statement of a number of complaints to Barakat, requesting a retrial for former President Hosni Mubarak concerning the cases of killing peaceful protesters during the January 25 Revolution in 2011 and wasting public money during his regime.

Among the protesters are movement leaders Abdel-Haliem Qandel, George Ishak, Mohamed Al-Ashqar, Karima Al-Hefnawy, Abdel-Rahman Kher, and Abdel-Rahman Al-Gohary, Hashem said.

“The evidence presented by the prosecution in the trail was not enough and that is why we have new complaints with new evidence. We will also file a new lawsuit against the prosecution because they did not apply enough evidences against Mubarak,” Hashem said.

Besides their complaints, another campaign will be lunched to continue calls for Mubarak’s retrial. Sue Them for 30 Years of Corruption campaign is part of Kefaya’s political steps against the old regime, he said.

Kefaya is a political movement established in 2004 to protest against then-President Hosni Mubarak’s regime and the strong possibility that he planned to transfer power directly to his son Gamal. The founders are a number of political figures including George Isak, Amien Eskandar, Hamdeen Sabbahi, and Abdel Wahab El-Messiri.
