Egypt Court Overturns Mubarak Fraud Convictions

An Egyptian court has overturned the fraud convictions of former President Hosni Mubarak and his two sons and ordered a retrial.

Mubarak was imprisoned for three years in May 2014 after he was found guilty of fraudulently billing the government for $14m of personal expenses.

But the court has now ruled that legal procedures were not properly followed in the trial.

It is the last case that is keeping the former president behind bars. The 86-year-old has been in detention since April 2011.

Charges of conspiring in the killing of hundreds of protesters during the uprising that ended his rule in 2011 were dropped in November 2014.

Mubarak and his sons, Alaa and Gamal were also cleared of two separate corruption charges.
