Egypt's Mubarak gets 3 years for graft

By Associated Press in Cairo ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-05-22 07:02:12

A Cairo court convicted ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak of embezzlement on Wednesday, sentencing him to three years in prison.

The graft case against the 86-year-old Mubarak, who is kept in custody at a military hospital, is one of two against the former president who was ousted in a popular uprising in 2011 after nearly three decades in power. He is being retried over the killings of hundreds of protesters during the uprising.

Mubarak's two sons, one-time heir apparent Gamal and wealthy businessman Alaa, were also convicted of graft in the same case on Wednesday and sentenced to four years each in prison.
