Mubarak to be stripped of military rank and medals

General Mounir Ramadan confirmed Saturday that the Hosny Mubarak trial verdict would bring further consequences down on the ousted president, Ahram Online reported.

According to Ramadan, Article 123 of the military constitution states that any accused found guilty in a final verdict automatically loses his military rank and all privileges as well as being stripped of all medals.

The general also cited the second paragraph of Article 25 of the penal code that states, "Whoever is found guilty is to be deprived from all military rank or medal."

According to the military code issued by presidential decree 289 in 1972, those who fall under Article 123 of the military constitution are to be handed to civil prison authorities to fulfill their sentence.

Mubarak's lawyer, Fareed El-Dib, mentioned earlier during the trial that as a military man the ousted president is to enjoy his military status until he dies. El-Dib referred to a law issued by former President Sadat in 1979 in appreciation of the military leaders of the armed forces during the October 1973 War.

Hosni Mubarak was issued a life sentence for his role in the killing of protesters during the 18-day uprising.
