Ahmed Ezz, an Egyptian steel tycoon and former member of the National Democratic Party, is due in court for a corruption trial.

Ezz is alleged to have illegally made millions from cornering Egypt's steel market. To many in the country, he personifies so much of what was wrong with ousted president Hosni Mubarak's rule.

Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin reports.
