Mubarak, 2 former ministers fight $77 million fine

June 15, 2013 at 6:02 PM   |   Comments

CAIRO, June 15 (UPI) -- An Egyptian court has delayed the appeal of former President Hosni Mubarak, who is trying to avoid part of a $77 million fine.

Mubarak and two of his former ministers, Ahmed Nazif, who served as prime minister, and Habib El-Adly, the interior minister, were collectively fined $77 million for hurting the Egyptian economy, Ahram Online reported. The fine was imposed for an 18-day cut in Internet services during the 2011 demonstrations that led to Mubarak's ouster.

The Supreme Administrative Court scheduled a hearing on the appeal for July 1.

Mubarak won an appeal after being sentenced to life in prison for ordering the killing of protesters. He is currently being tried again.
