MP: Mubarak Did Not See Justice Coming This Way

Referring to pictures from Mubarak's court trial showing him on a hospital bed confined in a cage, MP Ezatollah Dehqani noted that the Arab despot had no other option but express regret and sorrow for what he has done to his people and country over the past three decades. "Mubarak would not even dream that he would be brought to justice in this way one day. This is the fate of all pharaohs," the lawmaker told ICANA Monday.

In conclusion, Dehqani expressed hope that the same fate would befall Bahrain's Al-Khalifa and audi Arabia's Al-Saud so that the rulers in those countries would be held accountable before their peoples and the dictators would be punished.

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.
