Egyptian court orders retrial in Mubarak corruption case
An Egyptian court on Tuesday overturned a three-year prison sentence against ousted president Hosni Mubarak on corruption charges and ordered a retrial.
A lower court had handed down the jail term in May last year after convicting him of embezzling about $14 mn which had been earmarked for the maintenance of presidential palaces.
It had also handed down four-year jail sentences against the toppled leader's sons, Alaa and Gamal.
