Former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak is back home, free following his release from custody after legal proceedings.

"Yes", his lawyer Farid al-Deeb told AFP when asked if Mubarak had left the hospital on Friday. In 2012, he was sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted of being an accomplice in the killing of unarmed demonstrators during the uprising that ended his rule. Last month, Ibrahim Saleh, attorney general of the East Cairo prosecution, accepted Mubarak's request to include time spent in prison pending trial as part of his sentence in the corruption case, state media reported. The Court of Cassation, Egypt's highest criminal court, upheld an earlier verdict, making the acquittal final.

Mubarak, 88, held the seat of president in 1981 after Anwar Sadat's assassination.

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak waves to his supporters as they gather in front of Maadi Military Hospital where Mubarak is house arrested in Cairo, Egypt on April 25, 2016. He has remained in power since.

The attacks began soon after el-Sissi led the 2013 ouster of the Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected president whose year in office proved divisive. Hundreds of its members have been killed by Sisi's security forces and thousands more are still languishing in jail. "Politically, everything flew in this direction and paved the way for the normality of this moment".
