Mubarak retrial judge withdraws, case adjourned

Cairo, April 13, 2013

The presiding judge in the retrial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak referred the case to another court on Saturday, leading to an indefinite adjournment of the proceedings.

Judge Mustafa Hassan Abdullah announced his decision at the start of the retrial at a police academy on the outskirts of Cairo, where the 84-year old former president had earlier been flown in by a helicopter.

The judge said he had decided to refer the case to the Cairo appeals court as he felt "unease" in reviewing the case.
