Cairo - Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak thanks his supporters November 29 as he is wheeled to a medical helicopter after criminal charges against him for ordering the killing of protesters during the 2011 revolt were dropped. An Egyptian court concluded that Mubarak should never have been charged in the first place and also dismissed similar charges against his interior minister and six aides. Protests erupted at universities across Egypt, condemning the court’s decision and urging lawmakers to act. Current President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, the second since Mubarak was overthrown, said he accepted the decision and urged his countrymen to move forward.
“Lawmakers need to listen to all of those grass-roots activists out in the streets yesterday, because they will most certainly be voting come November,” said Toni Van Pelt, president of the National Organization for Women.
