Mubarak’s denial becomes hit ringtone in Egypt
Three different versions of ringtones of the words Mubarak spoke are now available for download.
Washington: The few words uttered by Egypt’s dethroned president Hosni Mubarak at the start of his trial have now turned into hit ringtones in the country.
Three different versions of the ringtones of the few low, growly words the deposed leader spoke are now available for download, thanks to a website, reports ABC News.
The first ringtone records the judge’s voice calling on Mubarak by his full name -- Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak, to which Mubarak responds, “I am here, your honour.”
Another records Mubarak’s response to the charges of corruption and complicity in the butchery of around 850 protesters during the 18-day revolution that led to his own denouement.
“I completely deny all these charges,” the 83-year-old said as he lay on a hospital bed inside a cage of mesh and iron bars in a Cairo courtroom on the first day of his trial on Wednesday.
According to reports, the ringtones have already become popular among Egyptians.
