Egyptian court adjourns session considering objection of Alaa, Gamal Mubarak over graft case

The Cairo Criminal Court on Saturday adjourned to October 12 a session to consider an objection filed by ex-president Mubarak's sons, Alaa and Gamal, on their three-year imprisonment sentence over a graft case known in media as "the presidential palaces" case.
The defendants are demanding the sentence term to include the custody period they have already spent in jail and in view of the fines they have paid.
Prosecution representative asked the court to refuse the objection and keep the two defendants in jail until their imprisonment sentence ends.
Mubarak's sons were accused of illegally accepting gifts of five villas as well as two million meters of land in Sharm el-Sheikh from businessman Hussein Salem, a fugitive and co-defendant in today's trial.
