CAIRO- 25 April 2017: Although it has been six years since the wide protests that toppled him in 2011, former president Hosni Mubarak still has supporters whom were keen to send him greetings on the occasion of Sinai Liberation Day on Tuesday.
Mubarak has also received several phone calls from public figures to greet him, whilst he gathered with his family to celebrate, a source close to the ousted president told Egypt Today.
Mubarak received greetings telegrams from his supporters, some of which described him as ‘Egypt’s eagle,’ and ‘war and peace hero,’ the source added.
Mubarak left Maadi military hospital and moved to a residence in Heliopolis, days after the Court of Cassation acquitted him last March, after clearing him of charges of murdering the protesters during the 25 January Revolution.
On 25 April 1982, Egypt raised its flag over the Sinai Peninsula, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967.
It took Egypt a war in 1973 and a decade of negotiations to restore Sinai.
The Israeli withdrawal from the peninsula was gradual, and it was fully restored to Egypt when former president Hosni Mubarak brought back Taba in 1989 as per an international tribunal’s ruling.
