Ex-Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak Released After 6 Years In Prison

Former Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak has been freed today Friday after a six-year imprisonment following his overthrow during the Arab Spring in 2011.

Mr Mubarak,
88, was released from a military hospital in Maadi and is now back at
his home in a Cairo suburb, his attorney, Farid El Deeb, told CNN.
The Ex-president dominated the nation for three decades as President but went through a
series of criminal trials after being forced from office in 2011.
He was sentenced in 2012 to life in prison for complicity in the killings of protesters during the January 2011 revolt. Amnesty International said at least 840 people were killed and more than 6,000 injured during 18 days of street protests in Egypt.

He suffered health problems since his ouster, sometimes appearing in court on a stretcher.

Mr Mubarak
has been hospitalized for long periods with heart problems and stomach
cancer since his ouster. He has sometimes appeared in court on a
stretcher or in a wheelchair. He had been confined at Maadi
Military Hospital for treatment since 2012.
The former Egyptian leader is standing conviction for embezzling money to furnish his private
residences. He and his sons were convicted of corruption. 
Last month, attorney general of the East Cairo prosecution, 
Ibrahim Saleh, accepted
Mr Mubarak’s request to include time spent in prison pending trial as part
of his sentence in the corruption case, state media reported.
