Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, along with their father, were sentenced in prison for embezzlement.

Mubarak’s sons, Alaa and Gamal, were sentenced to 4 years in prison on the same charges. The defendants were also fined almost 3 million USD and forced to return the 14 million USD they embezzled. This was the second trial for Mubarak since a coup ended his presidency in 2011. It was not clear whether the three years Mubarak and his sons have already spent in prison will be counted.
