Thousands of Egyptians Protest After Its Announced Mubarak Won’t Face Charges

Standard

Crowds of Thousands Angrily Protested the Controversial Decision

An Egyptian court’s decision that former president Hosni Mubarak won’t face murder charges related to the Arab Spring of 2011 prompted fury across the country.  Thousands of protesters took to the streets to voice their anger with the decision.  In the 18 days leading up to Mubarak being ousted from his position, over 900 activists and protesters were killed.

Many of the activists who survived the difficult period are now in prison or have fled the country.  In addition to the murder charges, Mubarak was also acquitted of corruption charges he faced along with his children Alaa and Gamal.  If the past three-and-a-half years will count as time already served, Mubarak will be allowed to walk free.
