With the news that former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will be put on trial for the murder of protesters who opposed his regime, builders have quickly begun plans to build a pyramid in central Egypt to hold his body. “In the Egyptian form of justice he doesn’t have a chance in Hell,” said Aheem el Faud, head council assigned to Mubarak’s defense team. “In our country, just being charged is the equivalent of an execution,” he added. Mubarak, who ruled the country with an iron fist since the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981 was placed under house arrest shortly after sweeping protests spread across the country. It was during those protests that a number of participants were killed by security forces operating under the direction of Mubarak.
Workers will really have to step up the pace of building to assure that his pyramid will be ready by the conclusion of his show trial. Mubarak is expected to fight the charges but the success rate for victory in a casse like his is essentially zero. His final resting place is scheduled to be near his beloved city of Cairo.
