Former Egyptian Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi is due to appear in a secret court hearing on Saturday to give testimony in the trial of toppled president Hosni Mubarak on murder and corruption charges.

Mubarak, his two sons, interior minister Habib al-Adly and top security officials are accused of killing hundreds of peaceful demonstrators during an uprising that brought Mubarak's 30-year autocracy to an end in early 2011.

Mubarak, his two sons and a business tycoon are also accused of corruption.

The court will also hear the testimonies of former army chief of staff Sami Anan and former military police commander Hamdi Badeen on Sunday and Monday, judicial sources said.

This is the fourth session in the trial since Mubarak's release in August pending investigation after serving the maximum pre-trial detention period.
