Mubarak's release from jail ordered, to be under house arrest (Roundup)

Aug 22 2013, 10:24am CDT | by IANS

Cairo, Aug 22 (IANS) A court in Egypt has ordered a prison in Cairo to release ex-president Hosni Mubarak even as supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi called for protest rallies.

Cairo, Aug 22 — A court in Egypt has ordered a prison in Cairo to release ex-president Hosni Mubarak even as supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi called for protest rallies.

The court's order came after the the last of the corruption cases against Mubarak have been disposed of.

Mubarak will be transferred by military helicopter to his home arrest for security reasons, Xinhua reported citing Egypt's official news agency, which in turn quoted a security source.

According to some local media, Mubarak will be sent to Maady Military Hospital in Cairo after leaving prison.

On Wednesday, the court accepted Mubarak's petition over the corruption case of Ahram institution, and his lawyer paid 18.3 million Egyptian pounds (about $2.61 million)- the value of gifts which Mubarak and his two sons accepted via his information minister.

Then the court referred the case to the prosecution as the sole authority to determine Mubarak's release unless charged with other corruption cases.

In light of the state of emergency in the country, Interim Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi, the deputy military ruler, ordered that Mubarak be placed under home arrest to avoid more complicity in the politically divided country.

Mubarak is still banned from travelling abroad as he still faces a retrial on charges of involvement in the killing of protesters during the 2011 unrest that eventually toppled him.

Meanwhile, supporters of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi called on the Egyptian people to protest against the army Friday.

The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy, consisting of 33 Islamic movements, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Wednesday asked people to protest after the Friday prayer.

The alliance did not mention the venues for their rallies, according to Xinhua.

Egypt has witnessed unprecedented violent clashes since security forces dispersed two major pro-Morsi sit-ins in the country a week ago. Till now, nearly 1,000 people have been killed across the country, including some 100 policemen.

The alliance has failed over the past three days to organise massive marches, while the Egyptian authorities have detained the Muslim Brotherhood's top leader Tuesday over inciting violence and killing anti-Morsi protesters.

Islamist groups in Egypt have been accusing Morsi's ouster in early July as a "military coup".

Egypt has been undergoing a democratic transition since the fall of president Hosni Mubarak two years ago. In July this year, Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically elected president, was deposed by the armed forces after only one year in office.

The constitution was suspended and an interim government was then installed.

Is America Governable?

Nov 3 2014 8:30am CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The world seems a right mess! Ebola is wreaking havoc in West Africa. Spillover effects are more than likely to expand geographically, not lessen. The Islamic State threatens to control Iraq and Syria with a perverted ideology that in evilness approaches and may surpass the Nazis during World War II. And despite elections in America, the nation seems less, not more governable. Why is that? First, a ...

As with ISIS, Obama Administration 'Underestimates' Threat of Radical Islam Engulfing Libya

Sep 29 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Big Government

On Sixty Minutes, President Barack Obama said that his administration had “underestimated” the rise of the Islamic State.    Recent history supports a case that the President and his counselors have underestimated the entire crisis of disorder in the Arab world at least since the 2011 Libya intervention.   Libya’s anarchy today is where the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is headed swiftly.  The chaos of the Islamic State is capable of pulling down with it Jor ...
