Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will remain behind bars, even though he won an appeal in which he asked to be released while awaiting a retrial, Egyptian state-run media said Monday.
An appeals court granted his appeal Monday, technically freeing him in the case involving the killing of nonviolent protesters during the 2011 uprising that brought him down. But that action was made moot when the court also ordered that he remain detained in connection with newer corruption charges that were added to the older allegations, state media said.
State media confirmed the court's orders Monday afternoon, after conflicting reports from state media and the country's Information Ministry about whether the orders were made.
looks like hes sleeping all day. He dont wannna go anywhere. Let him sleep. Lol
He looks embalmed.
Shame that he was overthrown. Now Egypt is a hot mess and Israel is scurred.
Mubarak is quite ill and yes he was ousted but it took 30 years for the Egyptian to bring him down not unlike Morsi whom after a year is now being drag down to be remove in the presidential palace
