They have all denied that they ordered police to shoot protesters or use deadly force during the uprising, in which demonstrators torched police stations across the country.
Hosni Mubarak and two of his sons Alaa and Gamal along with business partner Hussein Salem, who escaped to Spain, are also on trial over corruption issues.
