    Egyptian administrative court fined ousted President Hosni Mubarak and two former officials 540 million Egyptian pounds ($91 million) on Saturday for cutting off mobile and internet services during protests in January.

    It was the first court ruling to be made against Mubarak since he was ousted on February 11. Mubarak faces more serious charges, including ordering the killing of protesters, a charge which could carry the death penalty.

    A judicial source said the administrative court fined Mubarak 200 million Egyptian pounds, former Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif 40 million pounds, and former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly 300 million pounds.

    Now why couldnt Gerorge Bush be fined for Illegal War? Why couldnt prosecutors give him the death penalty for killing our boys in IRAQ?

    I think a better question is; If Mubarak did something that was worth a $91 Million fine, why didn't they just execute him?
