Mubarak's Retrial to Begin Next Month

Judge recently withdrew himself from proceedings


CAIRO, April 17 (Xinhua)—Egypt's Court of Appeals has set May 11 to retry former President Hosni Mubarak and his Interior Minister Habib al-Adli over the case of killing protesters, state- run al-Ahram online reported Wednesday.

The former president along with his two sons Gamal and Alaa, as well as fugitive tycoon Hussein Salem will also be retried over charges of financial corruption and profiteering.

The retrial had been set on April 13, but it was adjourned, as presiding judge Mustafa Hassan Abdullah withdrew from the case and referred it to the Court of Appeals again.
