Justice Minister to meet with judge presiding over Mubarak trial

Justice Minister Abdel Aziz al-Guindi is to meet with Ahmed Refaat, the judge who will preside over the trial of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, his sons Alaa and Gamal, and his business tycoon friend Hussein Salem.

Sources expect the minister to ask Refaat to hold the trial outside of Cairo, as requested by the interior minister for security reasons.

In related news, judicial sources said that the former ministers of interior, tourism, housing and finance, who were indicted by first instance courts to return funds to the state, have not yet paid back a single penny.
