Egypt’s ousted long-time autocrat is back in court as his trial resumes on charges related to the killings of some 900 protesters during the 2011 uprising that led to his ouster.
The 85-year-old Mubarak was wheeled into the defendants’ cage in a heavily-fortified courtroom in Cairo on Saturday, sitting upright, confident and waving to supporters.
It’s his second court appearance since he was released from prison in August and transferred to a military hospital where he is being detained pending trial on other, corruption cases.
Mubarak was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the 2011 killings, but his sentence was overturned on appeal earlier this year and a retrial was ordered.
