A Cairo court has set a September trial date for Mohamed ElBaradei on charges of “breaching national trust” for resigning as interim vice-president for foreign affairs when the violent crackdown of the pro-Morsi sit-ins began on August 14. The fact that a trial is going to take place because a politician decided to resign for conscience reasons, speaks out about how the political situation stands in Egypt. The order to release Hosni Mubarak contributes to a bad image.
