Cairo, Egypt. February 22, 2012
One of the demonstrators came to support the families of the martyrs. He says that the trail is a play. If this happens in other countries there was a clear rule against Mubarak and his men during the 60 days.
The martyrs's families are sitting on the ground, carrying pictures of their sons and asking for Mubarak's execution.
One of the Victims' lawyers tells what happened inside the court hearing. Mubarak's lawyer refused to move him from the International Medical Center to "Tora Prison Hospital". At the hearing, prosecutors told Judge Refaat that the medical wing of Cairo's Tora Prison was ready to receive Mubarak, state television reported.
They said that Tora Prison has the necessary medical facilities to treat Mubarak and that he can be transferred to the prison's hospital.
During the trial, Mubarak has been detained at the military-run International Medical Center due to his poor health condition.
Refaat said that he will look into the prosecutors’ request to transfer Mubarak to Tora Prison Hospital and will issue a decision shortly.
Mubarak’s former Interior Minister, Habib al-Adly, spoke for an hour and a half, saying the uprising was the result of a foreign plot to destabilize Egypt.
Adly spoke of a “conspiracy” against Egypt, blaming foreigners for the killing of protesters in the uprising that unseated the Egyptian president.
“I reaffirm before you that there were foreign saboteurs who desecrated Egypt's pure land and were supported by internal criminal elements with the aim of undermining Egypt's international and regional standing and attempting to destabilize its political, security and economic stability,” he said.
He blamed Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas for sending infiltrators to Egypt, and said the plot against Egypt was continuing to this day.
Adly said the plot involved “killing peaceful protesters, storming prisons to free terrorists and criminals, vandalizing public and private properties and burning police officers inside their vehicles.”
Dozens of police officers were also killed during the uprising.
Adly defended himself and the police against the charge of murder, drawing applause from some police officers standing at the back of the courtroom.
