Egypt’s General Prosecutor ordered the release of former President Hosni Mubarak after his imprisonment period over the Presidential Palaces case, one of the cases he is involved in, has ended.
However, Mubarak’s name is placed on a travel ban list.
Since his ousting during the January 25 revolution in 2011, Mubarak has spent six years in “prison”, staying at a five star hospital.
The release comes after his acquittal from another case on March 2. The Court of Cassation dropped all charges against Mubarak in relation to ordering the killing of protesters during the January 25 revolution.
The charges had related to the deaths of 239 people and injuries of 1,588 across 11 governorates in Egypt.
Mubarak had been sentenced to life in prison in 2012 for the killing of protesters before appealing the sentence.
