Egypt judge vows speedy Mubarak trial

By AFP

CAIRO (AFP) - The head of the Cairo Criminal Court has vowed a speedy trial for ousted president Hosni Mubarak, the official MENA news agency reported on Sunday.

Judge Ahmed Refaat said Mubarak's trial, which starts on Wednesday, would be aired live on Egyptian television to "reassure people of the (credibility of the) process".

The trial would be "held daily until its conclusion," he said in a statement that comes in response to the widespread public belief that the opening hearing would be immediately adjourned.

Mubarak faces trial with his two sons Alaa and Gamal, former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six of his deputies, and businessmen Hussein Salem.

They are all accused of corruption, and of ordering the killing of anti-regime protesters during the uprising that toppled Mubarak in January-February.
