Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak waves to his supporters from behind bars as he attends a hearing in his retrial on appeal in Cairo, Egypt, Saturday, April 13, 2013


CAIRO, Aug 13 (Aswat Masriya) - An Egyptian court will resume on Wednesday the retrial of former President Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, his Interior Minister and six of his aides on charges of killing protesters and exporting gas to Israel. 

The court is scheduled to hear the closing arguments of Mubarak, who held office for 30 years, and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal. 

Alaa Mubarak said on Monday that his father is ready to defend himself.

The court heard over the past three days the closing statements of Habib al-Adli and his six aides in the case of killing protesters during the January uprising in 2011. 

They are also being tried over inciting violence and creating a security vacuum during the early days of the uprising.
