Citizen Hosni Mubarak is on trial/re-trial before a Civil Courts’ Tribunal, facing the vague and feeble charge of “killing protesters” during the January/February 2011 popular protests. The General Prosecutor’s latest accusation acts did not accurately specify the number of victims, the whereabouts of the crimes, or the concrete documented proofs of Mubarak’s direct involvement in each case.. That’s why from day one I demonstrated¹ how wrong it was to celebrate this trial by means of the ordinary Criminal Law and before Civil Courts in such a hurry, and without taking the necessary care for building a solid case to be tried before a “Special Revolutionary Court” and according to Emergency Laws.
The offenses committed by the toppled ex ruler were not just that fragile accusation of conspiracy to commit multiple murders, which could be dissolved by a mere “I didn’t know, for was under treatment”, or worse even “they have deliberately disobeyed my orders to not harm a single hair from any citizen”; for the list is that long so it’ll need a full truck load to contain its related files; only if we would have a Public Prosecutor bold enough to open the closed drawers and honest enough to do the right thing.. Because ‘his’ criminal activities started ever since he was the young Colonel General Hosni Mubarak, the man commanding the Egyptian Air Defence Forces.
That man should’ve been tried for:
I told you the list is long, and of course the sub-entries under each of these counts will render it endless; as such each count could be celebrated in a separate Class Action before the Revolutionary Court in the name of the Egyptian People; and that’s how ‘he’ would’ve never had the chance to see another daylight, instead of being honoured in a five star cell, saluted by the prison guards and officials, regularly receiving his personal barber to dye his all white hair, and a lot of other provocations which are all confirming that “…all citizens are not equal before the law”.
Under the pre-packaged court motivations for ‘his’ expected acquittal, for “..lack of evidence and prevailing of uncertainties”, I fear that ‘he’ will be granted a house arrest as a first step before allowing him to travel abroad for urgent and delicate medical care (also paid by us I’m afraid); where he and his family will live forever after in a luxurious jet set easy life enjoying our money.. The money they have stacked for years confidently inside the vaults of foreign banks and foreign assets! Other than “I was always devoted and have given many sacrifices for this country and for the welfare of the people”.
Anyhow, if you disagree with me, I beg of you a look at the following passages from Mr. Joseph TRENTO’s² book; it may enlighten you about ‘his’ “Motive and Opportunity” to commit at least 6 counts including High Treason, Illegal Arms Trade, Conspiracy to commit a political assassination, Collusion with Foreign Intelligence Agencies, Bribery, Appropriation and Office Abuse.. Three of which would guarantee the Capital Sentence.
I can’t help thinking about other players acting the same corrupt play.. The advantaged cast, which for decades have gathered tight together to constitute a false and uneducated Élite (a joint political/business Aristocracy), responsible for degrading the country and offering it as an easy prey to the claws of a ferocious dictatorship under the deceptive pretext of “Stability for Development”..
I think about the long queue of Pseudo Politicians, Power Climbers, Intellectual Mercenaries and Social Parasites; meddlers from the worst type, those who unscrupulously made their fortunes, and safely deposited them off-shore of course, at the expense of the collectivity. Accumulating huge proper profits with private interests by depriving the silent majority of the population from the basic necessities to live a decent human existence.. A population which has been denied its essential Human and Civil Rights.. A population that was already crushed by the grinding machine of Corruption obliging it to live in Poverty, Ignorance, Unemployment and Illegality.
Nevertheless we can’t overlook the dubious roles played by the post revolution ruling bodies of Egypt, participating in the country’s overall decay.. The hesitations of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.. The reluctance of the Brotherhood.. The silence and misinformation of the Media.. The inexperienced Presidency who’s unfit to rule.. The inexplicable controversial performance of the Magistrate.. The absence of Al Azhar.. The weakness of the Government.. The harmonised activities orchestrated by/for the Counter Revolutionary Lobbies.. The Delocalisation of Productive Businesses to other destinations.. The official adoption of Interest Capitalism instead of reinstating Production Capitalism.. The fractioned and disoriented opposition.. The unlawful practices of all Security Forces..
All of which are persistently acting for the same objective, and that is (a) to divide the Egyptian population onto small different insignificant and defenceless realities; (b) to be thrown down into an arena where armed cruel streets thugs are sovereign; (c) to be offered to greedy stock exchange market speculators, so they can get richer by devouring the savings and transfers of expatriated Egyptian manpower working in far lands where modern slavery’s labour trends are the main money maker; and (d) to wrap the entire nation into the thick layers of the terror from insecurity.
A revolution that does not clean its path, and settle all pending accounts with its rotten past, to pave the way for the better future it burst up for in the first place; could only be worthy of being called a riot, a rebellion or an uprising.. There is a price to be paid in order to deserve the revolutionary title and earn its merits for change.. We didn’t pay that price.. That’s why instead we shall dearly pay the consequences.
Pass On The Word.
