An Egyptian court has sentenced former president Hosni Mubarak and his two sons to jail for corruption.
Mubarak was sentenced to three years in prison and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, received four-year sentences for embezzling LE125 million ($17.9 million) of funds earmarked for the renovation of presidential palaces.
Mubarak and his two sons – who both face a separate corruption case – also face trials for involvement in the killing of protesters during the January 2011 uprising.
Mubarak was released from jail in August but has been kept under house arrest in a military hospital in Maadi, a Cairo suburb, because he has spent the maximum amount of time in pretrial detention.
Gamal and Alaa remain in jail, however.
Mubarak settled another corruption case by returning gifts he had received from state-run institutions.
