Egyptian Court Disbands Mubarak’s 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 is currently in a hospital in the capital, 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.
