The deposed Egyptian president was wheeled into court on Saturday to hear the verdict in the case against him on charges of corruption and ordering the killing of protesters last year.
His two sons, Gamal and Alaa, who are standing trial on corruption charges, also arrived in the court, where they stood alongside their father in the cage reserved for defendents.
The charges were dropped against both his sons.
Mubarak's former interior minister, Habib el-Adli, also charged over the deaths of protesters, was also among the defendants in the cage. He too was given a life sentence over his role in supressing the January uprising.
