Days Before Egyptian Presidential Election, Court Sentences Mubarak, Ignites Massive Protest

Posted June 6, 2012

Interview with Seif Da'Na, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, conducted by Scott Harris

egypt

Just days before Egyptians go to the polls in the final round of their nation’s first competitive presidential election, a three-judge panel convicted ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his former interior minister, Habib el-Adly, of being “accessories to murder” of pro-democracy protesters last spring. Both men were sentenced to life in prison. But the judges’ decision to dismiss corruption charges against Mubarak and his sons set off major protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and other cities across Egypt.

Those protesting were also angered with the court for acquitting many Mubarak regime officials who were directly involved in the orders given to police who killed more than 840 protesters and wounded some 6,000. Many legal observers predicted that Mubarak’s conviction and life sentence would likely be overturned on appeal.

Candidates seeking votes in Egypt’s presidential runoff election on June 16 and 17 attempted to spin the court verdict to their benefit. But with so many Egyptians viewing Mubarak’s sentence as a sham, the advantage appeared to shift to the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate Mohamed Morsi. His opponent Ahmed Shafik, Mubarak’s last prime minister before his ouster, is campaigning on a law-and-order platform. Between the Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Seif Da’Na, associate professor of sociology and international studies at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. He discusses the upcoming final round in Egypt’s presidential election and the recent court verdict on Hosni Mubarak.
