Egypt, the country that has given much attention to 2011's Arab Spring movements, is taking a tough stance against their ousted and former tyrannical leader Hosni Mubarak!
It's alleged by Egyptian prosecutors that Mubarak's regime ordered forces to kill over 800 protestors involved in the uprisings which began on January 25th, 2011.
The Associated Press reported that Egyptian prosecutor Mustafa Khater gave a fiery speech Thursday, calling for the hanging of Mubarak, saying:
"Retribution is the solution. Any fair judge must issue a death sentence for these defendants... We feel the spirits of the martyrs flying over this hall of sacred justice, and those who lost their sight by the bullets of the defendants are stumbling around it to reach the judge and demand fair retribution from those who attacked them... The nation and the people are awaiting a word of justice and righteousness."
Head of Cairo's Court of Appeals, Zakaria Shalash spoke on the possibility of Mubarak being hung saying:
"If proven, he will receive the same punishment as the person who carried it out and it could reach execution if it is proven that peaceful demonstrators were killed with premeditation."
Mubarak is not the only tyrant that could find himself in some deep legal trouble this year. From Syria's Bashar al-Assad, to Egypt’s Mubarak, many tyrants face the possibility of being executed this year.
