Court dismisses lawsuit depriving Mubarak, sons of political rights

Sun, Dec. 29, 2019
CAIRO – 29 December 2019: An Egyptian administrative court on Saturday decided to dismiss a lawsuit demanding the authorities to withdraw the orders and decorations of former President Hosni Mubarak and his two sons and to confiscate their properties.

The lawsuit dismissed by the court called for banning Mubarak and his sons, Alaa and Gamal, from practicing any political rights, including the right to run for election or assume any government or public position, based on the ruling.

It also called for obliging Mubarak and his sons to return the money they took as a monthly salary for the decorations, after he was convicted in case known in media as the “presidential palaces.”

The lawsuit states that Mubarak and his two sons face a final imprisonment sentence for three years and a ruling obliging them to return LE 147 million ($9.16 million), as they were convicted of seizing this money from the financial allocations for the presidential palaces.

The lawsuit demanded that Mubarak be deprived of pension as a former president or a former commander of the Egyptian Air Force, and be deprived also of a military funeral when he dies.

Mubarak resigned in February, 2011 after a popular uprising, and was detained, along with his two sons and many figures of his regime on charges including corruption, embezzlement of public funds, and killing protesters. They were acquitted of most of charges.
