Shafiq responds to Mubarak verdict
Ahmed Shafiq, Mubarak's last prime minister, has responded to his former boss' conviction by saying that no one is above the law.
"We do not have a right to comment on judicial rulings but this verdict indicates that no one is above questioning if the law requires," said Shafiq, who has described Mubarak as a role model on his official Facebook page.
"Those rulings certainly disprove any claims that a presidential candidate can reproduce a ruling system that has ended," he said, responding to critics who say Shafiq would revive the old order.
