In the letters, Mubarak ask the leaders to save him from the death penalty which was proposed by the Egyptian prosecutors for his role in the deaths of at least 850 protesters. He also asked for his family to receive help. Murat Yetkin, author of this article, argues that the future of Egypt will not be brighter if they execute Hosni Mubarak, it will be the opposite.
