About Hosni Mubarak
Hosni Mubarak was a renowned Egyptian politician and military leader. He became the fourth president of Egypt on October 14th, 1981, succeeding President Anwar Sadat, who was assassinated earlier in October that year.
Mubarak is known as one of Egypt’s longest-serving leaders. His tenure in office lasted for about 3 decades before he resigned in February 2011, following the Egyptian revolution that year.
Before Mubarak’s assumption of the presidency, he had served as the vice president of his country, between 1975 and 1981.
He had also served his nation in a variety of prominent positions, including serving as the commander of the Egyptian Air Force from 1972 to 1975.
He got married to Suzanne in 1959 and together they birthed two sons – Alaa Mubarak and Gamal Mubarak.
Mubarak passed away on February 25, 2020, in Cairo – he was 91-years-old.
There was a court order, in April 2011, to detain Mubarak and his sons (Gamal and Alaa) for interrogations on alleged corruption and misuse of power.
On 28th May 2011, he was found guilty of causing damages to Egypt’s economy after he had shut down telephone and internet services in the nation during the uprising period in 2011. Mubarak was fined an amount in the region of US$33.6 million.
In August 2011, Mubarak stood trial for his failure to stop the killings of non-violent protestors during the Egyptian revolution earlier that year. He was found guilty of complicity and received a life sentence in June 2012.
However, Mubarak’s conviction was later dismissed due to a lack of proper evidence of his direct involvement in the killings.
By the end of the very complicated court judicial hearings and judgment, Mubarak and his two sons had spent some years in prison.
