The year-long trial of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak came to a close on Saturday, when the Cairo criminal court handed down a verdict: life in prison.. The charges against Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for nearly three decades, included ordering the murder of protesters during last year's revolution.

Egyptian courts have also brought criminal charges against more than a dozen members of his inner circle, including his two sons, who are also scheduled to receive their verdict on Saturday. Some have already been convicted; others, like business tycoon Hussein Salem, fled the country after Mubarak's downfall.

Hosni Mubarak

Former president (1981-2011)
Charges: Murder; corruption, profiteering
Status: Convicted of complicity in murder, sentenced to life in prison; acquitted of corruption

The former Egyptian president was charged in May with murdering protesters during the revolution, a charge which could have carried the death penalty.

His trial began in August; he appeared in the dock alongside his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, as well as his former interior minister, Habib al-Adly. He pleaded not guilty, telling the judge he denied all of the charges against him.

He was finally convicted in June, sentenced to life in prison for complicity to murder - though, notably, not for directly ordering the murders of protesters - but was acquitted of corruption charges.

Mubarak was also convicted, along with his former prime minister Ahmed Nazif, of "damaging the economy" by shutting down mobile phone and Internet services during the revolution. He was fined 200 million pounds.
