Egypt must "scrap" the most
reviled laws of former president Hosni Mubarak`s era if it
wants to ensure free and fair parliamentary elections in
September, the secretary general of Amnesty International said.
The ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been fined USD 34 million for "damaging the
economy" by enforcing a shutdown of telephone and Internet
connections during the country`s popular uprising.
Egyptian authorities have detained Safwat
Al-Sherif, the former Secretary General of the country`s
largest National Democratic Party, in signs that the noose may
be tightening against ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
