Former Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak and both his sons, Alaa & Gamal are currently present in court to stand trial and face charges of corruption and killing protesters during the January revolution that resulted in the overthrowing of Mubarak and his regime.
Mubarak arrived to court -which was constructed in a police academy- via helicopter and was brought into court on what seems like a hospital bed, his sons by his side.
This is a historic moment. This is the first time in modern Arab history that a ruler is being tried in public for conspiring and indeed killing his own people, along a long list of other charges.
If convicted, Mubarak and his sons could face the death penalty.
You can watch the trial LIVE on Al Misriya channel on Nilesat.
