Mubarak may face death penalty if guilty

(RT) Deposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak may face a death penalty if proven guilty in court, the Al Ahram newspaper reported Friday, citing the head of the Cairo Court of Appeals. Mubarak is accused of complicity in the murder of protestors before his regime was toppled, and if proven guilty he may be executed, the court official stated. The softest sentence the former president can get is three years in jail for financial fraud and corruption, he added. The trial in Mubarak’s case will take no less than a year, as it is highly complicated. Mubarak stepped down February 11 as a result of the pressure from the public and army. Several cases have been filed against his family members and top government officials.
