An Egyptian court has fined ousted president Hosni Mubarak and former
officials more than $90m for cutting off access to internet and mobile
phone services during the country's massive protests in January.A
court source told the Reuters news agency on Saturday that Mubarak's
fine is $34m, former interior minister Habib al-Adly will owe $53m,
and former prime minister Ahmed Nazif has a fine of $7m.The amounts
relate to compensation for lost revenue as a result of the decision to
cut off access for five days starting on January 28, said the
source.The fine is to be paid from personal assets, and the state has
the right to increase the amount over the year if damages continue to
rise.This was the first court ruling against Mubarak since he was
ousted on February 11. Mubarak faces far more serious charges,
including ordering the killing of protesters, a charge which could
carry the death penalty.
