Mubarak Wins Right to Retrial

An Egyptian judge has ordered a retrial for former President Hosni Mubarak.

Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence after being convicted in June 2011 of conspiring in the killing of protesters, has suffered from failing health, and his lawyers hope that the retrial judges will take that into account. Mubarak has served the first six months of his life sentence in a Cairo military hospital.

No new evidence will be presented at the retrial, which will also reconsider corruption charges filed against Mubarak, two of his sons, as well as a re-examination of the conviction of former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly on charges identical to Mubarak's. If Mubarak and al-Adly are convicted of ordering the killings, as was not done previously, he could face execution.

The panel of judges who will hear the retrials have not set a date.
