An Egyptian court on Saturday adjourned until March 22 the trial of former president Hosni Mubarak and others on charges of killing demonstrators during the January 25, 2011 revolution and financial corruption.
The court also lifted a media ban on the trial, allowing television channels to broadcast the trial of the strongman who ruled Egypt for three decades from 1981.
Mubarak, his interior minister Habib al-Adly and six other Interior Ministry officials are accused of inciting the killing of hundreds of protesters during the January 25 revolution, which ended Mubarak's autocracy.
Mubarak, his two sons and business tycoon Hussein Salem are also tried on charges of financial corruption; abuse of power; profiteering, and exporting Egyptian natural gas to Israel at prices below market rates.
On Saturday, the court received a report from a technical committee about five villas in the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh that have allegedly been presented by Salem to Mubarak in the form of bribes.
Mubarak receives treatment at a southern Cairo military hospital.
He and his interior minister were sentenced to 25 years in prison in late 2012 on charges of killing demonstrators, but the court ordered a retrial after accepting an appeal from the former president against the sentence.
