CAIRO (AFP) - Ousted president Hosni Mubarak has pinned part of the blame on his successor as Egypt's ruler, a defence lawyer said on Friday. A Cairo court on May 28 fined Mubarak and two former ministers a total of $90 million dollars for "damaging the economy" with a telephone and Internet shutdown during Egypt's uprising. A lawyer for the ex-president, Mohammed Abdel Wahab, told reporters that Mubarak had lodged an appeal on Thursday against the ruling. The decision to cut the Internet was taken by a commission including Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Egypt's military ruler and then defence minister, according to Mubarak, who argued he had not been consulted.
