Egypt's April 6 youth movement angry over Mubarak's release

The April 6 youth group described former president Hosni Mubarak as a "criminal" shortly after a court ordered the toppled leader's release from detention on Wednesday.

"Mubarak has committed crimes against the people," group spokesman Khaled al-Masri told Anadolu Agency. "He [Mubarak] is a criminal, whether or not he is acquitted by the court."

On Wednesday, an Egyptian court ordered Mubarak's release after accepting an appeal filed by his lawyers againstcharges that the former president had received millions of Egyptian pounds worth of "gifts" from flagship state daiy Al-Ahram while in office.

It was the last case for which Mubarak had been remanded in custody.

On Monday, the former leader was acquitted of embezzlement charges in connection with his alleged use of public funds to renovate private villas.

The former leader – along with his two sons, former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six of the latter's aides – is also being retried on charges of complicity in the killing of unarmed protesters during the 2011 revolution that ended his 30-year rule.

"The Egyptian people issued their ruling against Mubarak in Tahrir Square and forced him from power," al-Masri said, in reference to Egypt's 2011 popular uprising.

"As for the charges of which he was acquitted, there are other legal channels that we are currently working on," he added.

Mubarak was ousted in early 2011 after having ruled the country since the 1981 assassination of president Anwar Sadat.
