Cairo — An Egyptian court has acquitted the former president Hosni Mubarak's two sons and his last prime minister of corruption charges.
The Cairo criminal court found Gamal and Alaa Mubarak and Ahmed Shafiq innocent in a case that arose from the sale in 1995 of a plot of land to Mubarak's sons by an association led at the time by the former prime minister, judicial officials said.
Prosecutors claimed the land was sold to the two at a price lower than its market value.
Shafiq, who has been living in the United Arab Emirates since losing the presidential election to Mohammed Morsi in 2012, was tried in absentia.
All three men are still set to be tried on other corruption charges.
