The public school or street Hosni Mubarak labeled with the name of his wife Suzanne have their days numbered. The Emergency Court of Cairo on Thursday ordered to erase the trace of the deposed president and his wife "all public buildings, plazas, streets and libraries." The measure, claimed by several lawyers, urges the Government to clear the streets of the Egyptian dictator's name, according to state news agency Mena.

According to the Ministry of Education, 549 schools are currently named after the former president, his wife Suzanne, who also must appear in court charged with corruption-in or his son Gamal, who remains from last week at the Tora prison with his brother Alaa.

In contrast, former presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anwar Sadat named only 314 schools. Like its two predecessors, Mubarak, who continues to stay at an exclusive hospital in Sharm el Sheikh pending further questioning, enjoying a subway station in Cairo. It superseded his name to stop the Martyrs in tribute to the 846 killed during the 18 days of protests.
