Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to be releasedBy Lin Noueihed and Ahmed Aboulenein CAIRO (Reuters) – Hosni Mubarak, overthrown as president of Egypt in 2011 and the first leader to go on trial in the wake of the Arab Spring, will walk free this week for the first time in six years. Mubarak was initially arrested in April 2011, two months after stepping down, and has since been in prison and military hospitals. “He will go to his home in Heliopolis,” Mubarak’s lawyer Farid El Deeb said, referring to the Cairo neighborhood where the main presidential palace from which Mubarak governed is also located.
