Mubarak denies responsibility for genocide

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has denied he ordered firing on demonstrators during the uprising in Egypt, according to a transcript of his interrogation. When asked to explain the deaths, Mubarak played down the severity of the repression. Mubarak, 83, is being held in an Egyptian hospital.

He faces charges of ordering the use of lethal force against protesters during the popular revolt that overthrew him in February. Since then, little has been said in public and transcription offers his broader statements until the last days of his regime for three decades. Court officials said the transcript was genuine.

In contrast, Mubarak's defense attorney, Farid el-Deeb, said part of what was published was faked, but declined to elaborate. The transcript was revealed when there is a new wave of protests across the country. Protesters have taken a week ago Tahrir Square in Cairo, the site where the participants of the revolt remained popular day and night.

The demand for justice for victims of the uprising is one of the most difficult transition to democracy in Egypt. Our people, our security forces are. I can not explain the death of protesters. No one had listened to me or my órdenesex president of Egypt.
