Lawyer for ex-minister want Egypt's army ruler as witness

CAIRO - Lawyers representing former Interior Minister Habib Adli called on Wednesday for the military ruler of Egypt to be summoned as a witness in the trail that includes former president Hosni Mubarak.
"We ask for the summoning of the national security council, the (former) cabinet and political leaders and we also ask to summon Field Marshal (Mohamed Hussein) Tantawai and General (Omar) Suleiman to speak to them," one of Adli's lawyers said.
Tantawi, who now heads the ruling military council was Mubarak's defense minister for two decades, and Suleiman was Mubarak intelligence chief and appointed vice president in the last days Mubarak was in office.
The court proceedings were televised.
