Cairo: An Egyptian court Monday ordered to grant parole to former president Hosni Mubarak in the case of killing protesters during the 2011 turmoil, but kept him in custody pending investigations in other cases.

The Cairo Court of Appeals' decision came as the temporary detention of Mubarak for his involvement in the killing of protesters case exceeded the two-year maximum term, which ended April 12 in line with the Egyptian law, Xinhua reported.

In April, 2011, Mubarak was arrested over alleged accusations of killing protesters and other charges.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment in June, 2012 in the case of killing protesters. But he appealed against the court's verdict later.

The Court of Cassation accepted the appeal and ordered a retrial for Mubarak and his interior minister Habib al-Adly.
