CAIRO: The appeal hearing of former president Hosni Mubarak on charges of killing protesters during the January 25 Revolution in 2011 was postponed to Jan. 21 Thursday morning, Youm7 reported.
Supporters of Mubarak clashed with protesters outside the Court of Cassation Thursday morning before the day’s hearing, Youm7 reported.
On Nov. 29, 2014, Mubarak, his two sons and Salem were acquitted of all charges related to corruption, and the charges against them alleging they were responsible in the 2011 killing of January 25 Revolution protesters were dismissed, as the judge said the charges were groundless. Attorney General Hesham Barakat challenged against the acquittal in the same day.
Heavy rains and unseasonably cool temperatures have caused delays around Cairo Thursday.
