CAIRO - An Egyptian court on Saturday suspended its order to remove the names of former President Hosni Mubarak and his wife Suzanne from public institutions.

Officials seeking to win presidential favor routinely named streets, schools, military installations and remote rural clinics after Mubarak in the years before the popular uprising which toppled him in February.

Lawyers filed a suit seeking cancellation of the court's original ban in April. Judge Mohamed el-Sayed said the court had temporarily suspended its verdict pending a review of the case on Wednesday.

Mubarak has been ordered to stand trial on August 3 on charges of killing of protesters, which could carry the death penalty. He is also accused of abuse of influence, wasting public funds and unlawfully making private financial gains.
