Judge Mohammed Hassan Omar said the names of Hosni Mubarak and his wife Suzanne would be removed from “public squares, streets, libraries and other public institutions around the country.”

Mubarak was overthrown on February 11 after nearly three weeks of anti-regime protests which ended his 30-year rule.

The former strongman is under arrest in a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El Sheikh, being questioned over his alleged role in violence against protesters during the popular uprising.

His two sons, Alaa and Gamal, are also in prison pending investigations into the violence during the protests that erupted on January 25.

Mubarak, his wife and their two sons, were also to be questioned on charges of corruption.
