An Egyptian court on Saturday dismissed criminal charges against former president Hosni Mubarak in connection with the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his nearly three-decade reign.

A helicopter transporting the 86-year-old former president took off from the Maadi military hospital early Saturday, where he is currently serving a three-year-sentence after he was found guilty of corruption, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

Families of the victims gathered in front of the Police Academy, where the trial is being held.

Earlier in September, the presiding judge was supposed to announce the court’s decision but postponed the judgment to Nov.29 saying that he did not have the time to go through thousands of case documents filed.

Today’s verdict ends a long retrial after an appeals court overturned a life sentence handed down in 2012.

In addition to the families of the victims, a crowd of Mubarak’s supporters also gathered in front of the court house, Al Arabiya News Channel’s correspondent reported.
