Egypt: Mubarak Trial Over Presidential Palaces Adjourned to March 19

Cairo — A Cairo criminal court has adjourned the trial of former President Hosni Mubarak and his aides over accusations that they illegally spent over 100 million Egyptian pounds, from public funds, on presidential palaces, to March 19.

Mubarak's sons are also accused in this case.

The former president was ousted by a nationwide uprising in 2011 after ruling the Arab World's most populous country for 30 years.

He is now being tried over several accusations along with his aides. He has so far denied all charges.
