THE two sons of ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak walked free from prison today, nearly four years after they were first arrested along with their father.
Alaa and Gamal Mubarak left Torah Prison in southern Cairo shortly after daybreak and headed to their homes in the capital’s posh Heliopolis suburb.
They still face a retrial on corruption charges along with their father. Separately, the two sons are set to appear on insider trading charges.
Hosni Mubarak stepped down in February 2011 in the face of a popular uprising.
He and his two sons were arrested in April that year and Mubarak senior is still detained in a military hospital.
The release of the two came a day after deadly clashes between anti-government protesters and police marked the fourth anniversary of the uprising that ended their father’s 29-year rule. Sunday’s clashes left at least 18 people dead, including three police officers.
