The Cairo Criminal Court ruled on Tuesday to postpone the retrial of former President Hosni Mubarak and his associates to 4 June in order to hear the defense of Osama al-Marasy, the former Giza security director.

The trial, held at the Police Academy, includes Mubarak, his two sons Alaa and Gamal, his Interior Minister Habib al-Adly and six of his top aides, and fugitive businessman Hussein Salem.
