Egyptian Court Postpones Former President Mubarak Verdict
MOSCOW, November 29 (Sputnik) – An Egyptian court on Saturday dismissed murder charges against ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his security commanders over the killing of protesters in a 2011 uprising.

Although the court ruled that Mubarak wasn’t guilty of any new corruption charges, he will remain in prison because he is serving a three-year sentence in a separate corruption case.

The new verdict was initially scheduled for September 27, but Mahmoud Kamel al-Rashidi, the chief judge, postponed it, saying he had not finished writing the reasoning after a retrial that saw thousands of case files presented.

The ex-president was initially found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment for the deaths in 2012, but the conviction was later overturned on technical grounds.

Mubarak, 86, is already serving a separate three-year prison sentence for embezzlement of public funds.
