Mubarak trial: ousted president faces judgment

It was a day that millions of Egyptians thought would never come: their former president Hosni Mubarak in court, in a cage, forced to answer charges of brutality and corruption. Laura Baines asks her panel if the trial is necessary for Egypt to move forward and put an autocratic past behind it, or if it's a dangerous distraction - a trial motivated by revenge.

  • Ahdaf SOUEIF, Egyptian novelist and political commentator (from Cairo);
  • Geneviève GARRIGOS, President, Amnesty International France;
  • Chérine FOTY, Egyptian-American attorney;
  • Robert SPRINGBORG, Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School, author of "Mubarak's Egypt: Fragmentation of the Political Order" (from Monterey, California).
