The Giza Criminal Court has ordered the release of Alaa and Gamal Mubarak in a case of alleged stock market manipulation.

The court ordered their release on Tuesday, after their detention exceeded the maximum allowed period.

The two sons of ousted president Hosni Mubarak will remain in custody on other corruption charges, Deputy Prosecutor General Hassan Yassin told state-run Al-Ahram.

Alaa and Gamal were accused of illicitly gaining EGP 12m and illegally funnelling more than EGP 1bn to “other” profiteers.

The court had asked the prosecution to identify the others in the case, who responded by saying clarification would be sought in supplementary investigations.

During the court session Gamal Mubarak asked to question the witnesses, adding that the witnesses’ testimonies could provide the court with missing information.

The Cairo Criminal Court had ordered the release of Alaa and Gamal on Monday in the case of killing protesters during the 25 January Revolution; the retrial was postponed until 6 July.
