Mubarak's trial in Egypt is unusual event
Egypt, Politics, 8/23/2011
Amnesty International researcher for the Middle East and North Africa noted in near disbelief that a moment such as this could be arrived at, is to see the former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, recently forced out of office by a popular revolutionary outcry, being brought to trial as "has appeared in a Cairo court on murder and corruption charges."
The Amnesty researcher said "As he denied the charges read aloud by the presiding judge, I kept thinking of activists and opponents to his rule who had been unfairly made to stand trial when he was in power."
He added in his writings on the Amnesty International website Amnesty.org that "Like so many other Egyptians, until the very last minute I doubted Mubarak would actually show up to his trial until I saw him lying on the stretcher beside his sons in the courtroom. His co-defendants the former Minister of the Interior and his senior aides were sitting together on a bench in the same cage.. After watching the day's proceedings, I thought: 'We have come a long way.'"
