A report says that deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has sent multiple letters to the leaders of countries that were friendly to his regime including the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Italy, Kuwait, Bahrain, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. 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. To prove his point, he states four examples were former regime leaders were executed which resulted in turmoil and uncertainty in those countries; Turkey, Pakistan, Iraq and Libya.
