MP: Mubarak's Trial Symbolizes Fate of All Dictators

"Lack of attention to the values and demands of the people by governments means the end of the road for every dictator ruling in the Arab world today," Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told ICANA Saturday.

He said Mubarak worked against his own people for three decades, adding: "Mubarak's trial is a big lesson for all the governments who overlook the demands and wishes of their peoples."

The lawmaker said Mubarak was now kept in an iron cage due to the people's wrath. "Respect for the wishes of the people is the only way to prevent this," he added.

At a historic trial in the Arab world, ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is standing in the dock after the former ruler and his sons entered the purposely-built cage in a Cairo court.

The trial of the overthrown dictator started on Wednesday, months after a revolution in Egypt, which ended Mubarak's decades-long rule.

Shortly after being flown to the Almaza military airport in Cairo, Mubarak arrived at the Police Academy in a Cairo suburb where he and his two sons will stand trial on charges of corruption and ordering the killing of anti-government protesters in Egypt.

Mubarak was brought into the Cairo courtroom on a stretcher for the opening of his murder trial in the capital as his two sons stood by his side.

It was Mubarak's first public appearance since he was ousted by a revolution on February 11.

Mubarak's trial is taking place under tight security as nearly 3,000 riot police and security forces are ringing the courthouse.

The ousted Egyptian president appeared in court along with several of his former associates.

He is reportedly receiving treatment for a heart condition.

Mubarak's transfer to Cairo has been a key demand of people still protesting at the landmark Liberation Square.

Mubarak, his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, former Egyptian Interior Minister Habib al-Adli and six senior policemen are facing charges of ordering the killing of anti-government protesters in Egypt.

The Mubarak family is also facing allegations of corruption as well as the use of violence against protesters.

Mubarak was ousted in February following weeks of anti-government protests in Egypt that put an end to his three-decade rule.

The commission investigating the violence against the protesters in Egypt says more than 800 demonstrators were killed in the demonstrations.

Egypt's judicial officials say the former dictator could be executed if found guilty of ordering to shoot anti-government protesters.

Some news reports said Saudi Arabia would expel Egyptian workers and take its capitals out of Egypt in case Mubarak is tried. However, Saudi ambassador to Cairo has denied these reports.

Mubarak’s wife Suzanne Mubarak has reportedly threatened heads of Arab states that if Mubarak is tried, she would publish sex scandals of certain Arab leaders.
