The 83-year-old former president appeared at a special court in Cairo on Wednesday. He faced charges of corruption and the unlawful killing of over 850 protesters during the Tahrir Square revolution that forced him from power.
There are three different recordings of the deposed leader's few words on the first day of trial. They are doing the rounds on the Internet and are available for download, the ABC News reported.
The first is of the judge calling on Mubarak using his full name - Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak - followed by the ex-President's response: "I am here, your honour."
The third and the most popular one is
Mubarak's response to the charges of corruption and complicity in the
murder of 850 protesters. "I categorically deny all the charges," said
Mubarak, as he lay on a hospital bed inside a cage of mesh and iron bars
in the courtroom.
Not only have the ringtones exploded in popularity, but many Egyptians took to social networking websites like Facebook to post photos of Mubarak inside the cage on their walls.
