Egyptian Court Disbands Mubarak Party

Judicial sources say the court has also ordered its funds and property to be handed to the government, a Press TV correspondent reported on Saturday.

Much of NPD'S senior leadership is now behind bars on charges of violence and corruption. The dissolution of the party was one of the demands of the Egyptian protesters.

On Wednesday, Mubarak -- who was ousted in a historic revolution two months ago --and his two sons were taken into a 15-day custody over accusations of corruption and abuse of authority.

Mubarak's detention and dissolution of his party would likely appease the protesters and calm ongoing political tensions, Press TV's correspondent reported from Cairo.

Mubarak is currently in a hospital in Cairo, receiving treatment for heart problems.

Egyptian protesters say he must be tried for killing around 800 protesters during the country's popular uprising which led to his ouster on February 11.

Egypt's judicial officials have recently said that Mubarak could be executed if found guilty of ordering to shoot anti-government protesters.

However, Egyptians are still skeptical about a rapid transition towards democracy and civilian rule and maintain that demonstrations will continue until all their demands are met.

Activists demand the release of political prisoners, the lifting of a 30-year-old state of emergency and the disbandment of the military court.

Egypt's army has promised to lift the emergency rule ahead of the slated parliamentary and presidential elections.
